Casa de la Suerte

Every home has a story. This home’s story is about the union of a mother and her children to create a true in-law residence — and about a team of people bringing that vision to life. Amid a tight housing market, the family behind Casa de la Suerte opted to use existing land to build a standalone home. Commissioned by and for Patty Volpi, this large casita brings the family together.

The design prioritizes energy and space efficiency. Yazdec Construction delivered a small, well-appointed home by removing wasted space from the floor plan. Noticeable details include European tilt-and-turn windows, handcrafted cabinetry, a high-efficiency mini-split heating and cooling system, nichos, an arched hallway, vigas and a rough-cut ceiling, and intentional landscaping with an underground water catchment system that irrigates the vegetation.

Yazdec says the endeavor was nothing short of a community project, beginning with a close collaboration with architect Sobia Sayeda. It continued as a talented, joyful team of colleagues — from landscapers and fence builders to stone masons and more — executed the vision together. The project is a culmination of vision, integrity, and deep commitment.
