Palette of Materials

The home’s material palette of Aegean limestone, western red cedar, zinc and board-formed concrete makes it feel one with its surroundings. In response to the steep slope, the low-slung architecture is terraced into the hillside to create fluid indoor outdoor connections. Inspired by the client’s appreciation for art and nature, the residence incorporates bold architectural moves and ands elements of surprise through unexpected spaces. It was designed by Walker Warner Architects.

The Unique Design

The unique design of the residence derived from the client’s appreciation for art, translating into bold architectural components that convey the element of surprise through unexpected spaces.

Although the property sits on a steep slope, the architects were able to create a gracious entry, as well as fluid indoor to outdoor connections from all main living spaces. The main entrance sits a half-level below the upper and is complete with broad stairs, a sunken garden and compelling red door to draw guests into the entryway.
