Houzz Tour: Belvedere
Designed by Buttrick Wong Architects, this gorgeous house has a spectacular view of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge.
The sun-filled central space for sitting, swimming and relaxing is pulled inside the building through large trellis framed patio openings and the warm colored plaster which runs continuously both inside and outside the home.
Heat gain and glare is passively mitigated by the trellises, and a sod roof over part of the building controls thermal lag.
The project contains an infinity edge pool, a spa, entertainment area and outdoor rotisserie.
