The site orientation of this house responds to southern views facing south across the San Francisco Bay. The crescent shaped arrangement of volumes, bounds a courtyard with an infinity edge pool at the center–blurring the distinction between the Bay and pool. Broad trellises at the building perimeter, create seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, while reducing glare off the water. The restrained material pallet and flush details throughout create a calm and tranquil effect.

what material was used to achieve the color in the pool? »
The modern, mosaic bottom pool offsets the traditional architecture of the home. Other contemporary accents are the chaise lounges and daybeds that are low to ground and clean lined which shows a great balance between traditional and contemporary design aesthetics.
