The Turner's previous home was an extraordinary, but traditional house. Built over a hundred years ago, the yellow Victorian’s unique personality has made it a well-loved landmark in Larkspur. In imagining a new home, Ellen and David Turner wished to employ the very best contemporary thinking to create a house that would fit both the family and the community.
They wanted the house to be as thoughtfully organized as David's Minox and fun and stylish as Ellen's Cinquecento. The new residence was to be beautifully simple and connected to nature. They wished their new home to be environmentally sensitive, and universally accessible. This dream home would be positioned to enjoy the unique property and views of the bay, be respectful of the neighbors and community, and serve as an example of the best of contemporary design.
