MEA - Sausalito Residence

Sausalito Residence Sausalito, California An urbane elegant home with a warm modern ambiance. The interiors are comfortable and playful, open to the expansive view of San Francisco Bay. The lot is a typical Sausalito hillside lot, small and sloping down from the street to the east. To the north is a sweeping view of Sausalito, looking much like a town on the Amalfi Coast of Italy. To the east and south an inspiring view sweeps from downtown San Francisco, across the Berkeley hills and Mount Diablo to Angel Island and Tiburon. The existing three-storey home was in a state of disrepair, and had been planned as a series of small dark rooms connected by a convoluted staircase. Our solution was to remove most of the interior walls through the use of structural steel, create a dramatic stair event, and open the exterior walls to the views.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"Love this idea for a light -- playful. I have not seen it but in one or two places." (sohobecky) "Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles." (urbanliving01)
Kit Pollard added this to Chandeliers That Bring the Drama
This look - bubbly but sophisticated and modern - is such a great alternative to a more traditional-looking chandelier, and perfect with this modern-rustic interior. Plus, fantastic with the mirror.
Becky Harris added this to Dramatic Lighting
Glass bubbles float down from the ceiling to provide light to this dining room table.
Cascading bubbles add major drama to the dining room. This fixture is also great for a tall foyer or staircase.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Design 2011: Trends to Build On
The same room from another view highlights the contrast of materials.
While the pragmatists see a housecleaning nightmare (yes, it's going to take some effort), the dreamers dine in an airscape of bubbles. This fixture is a favorite on Houzz, and it's no wonder why.
