Cole Valley Residence
A new home responds to the site’s geology and celebrates expansive views, resulting in a sculptural stack on a steep urban hillside.
This ongoing project is a new house designed for a steep lot near Mount Sutro Open Space Preserve. On the owners’ wish list was a home to play up the views and a sense of openness, while also providing privacy. The resulting composition of five stacked, shifting volumes creates a series of spaces — from the intimate to the breathtaking — featuring a large cantilever towards the view.
