Architect: John Swain
Location: Tiburon, CA
This was a 3500 sq. ft. new house built on a slope in Tiburon.
When the property next door to them went up for sale, these clients purchased it and then contracted with us to demo the old structure and build a new house in its place. Part of the home cuts into the hillside, so the challenge here was to allow in as much natural light as possible, and brighten up the areas where natural light wasn’t achievable. This was accomplished by installing tall windows and doors, using white paint colors, and utilizing light building materials vs. dark. What started out as pictures in an online idea board turned into a remarkably stunning project.
