Pleasanton Residence – Pleasanton, CA. The Pleasanton Residence project is a contemporary craft-oriented design that is set within the backdrop of an existing 5000 square foot Mediterranean home located at the base of the foothills in the Pleasanton valley region. The design intention was to keep the a majority of the existing home’s details and basic design vocabulary while simultaneously “grafting” a new layer of contemporary design features that together form a distinct new architectural language for the home.
