This Hong Kong client was an experienced home builder – having designed many homes over the years, they knew what they wanted in this new home. We worked closely with the builder, architect, interior designer to make sure everything was perfect.
This 6,000-square-foot home terraces down a steep, sloped lot in Tiburon with dramatic views of the bay. It features spectacular and unobstructed views of San Francisco, San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge to the south.
The living spaces open up to the views, and the large decks and cantilevered terraces allow for ample outdoor living. Water is a prominent feature of this home, beginning with a waterfall at the entry that becomes a narrow water feature running directly through the public living areas and out to the pool facing the bay.
Blending Technology into the homes design was paramount. We worked hand and hand with the Design team to fit tight tolerances. A complete integrated Savant system, Lutron Lighting, Lutron Shades, Cameras, Access Control, Video and House Music were all seamlessly created.
How is the project unique?
The home is organized on three levels that step down the steep hillside. The entry and all ‘public’ spaces - kitchen, dining, living and family spaces - are located on the middle level, accessed by dual landscape stairways from the east and west ends of the property. A double height living space adds drama and vertical connectivity to the interior spatial composition. Family bedrooms are located on the upper level, with the master suite featuring a private outdoor Japanese ‘onsen’ open-air bathing area that overlooks San Francisco Bay. A children’s play area is located on the lower level.
Deep, cantilevered terraces are located on the south side of all levels of the home, extending interior spaces to the exterior, and creating outdoor living areas that overlook some of the most beautiful views in the San Francisco Bay Area.
