Jewel Box Residence: The Joyful, Light-Filled Modern Home

Jewel Box Residence: The Joyful, Light-Filled Modern Home

Introducing the Jewel Box Residence, a stunning two-story modern residence designed by the renowned firm Ogawa Fisher Architects.

Located in the tech hub of Palo Alto, California, this compact lot challenged the opposing needs of house vs. yard, but the architects embraced the border between closed and open, creating a sense of protection and comfort to the exterior while bringing the experience of the outdoors inside.

The young couple who commissioned the project desired a home that would be their sanctuary outside their busy professional lives and a place that could serve as a modern backdrop for personal design experimentation while supporting the wife’s growing business as a floral designer and owner of an online boutique, Slow Sunday, selling modern, minimalist Japanese wares.
