    Living/Dining spaces are "bridge" between north and south terraces for maximum transparency.

  • This home is embedded in a steep, secluded, north facing hillside with views towards the San Francisco Bay. Its elongated plan follows the site's contours and its broad roof tucks under strict town height limits. While the major views are towards the north, the house also looks south into a courtyard that passively collects the sunlight through shaded glass and provides generous cross ventilation and transparency.

The architecture is sculptural, but every element works overtime to enhance the home's livability and efficiency. A three-story staircase dramatically unites the house, appearing as a powerful sculptural element in the courtyard. Expansive decks on the north extend the interior space towards the panoramic Bay view. An imposing two-story "tower" on the southeast corner of the house contains an office and the master bath, but also frames the entrance while shielding private areas from a neighboring house towards the south.
