Curved House

The Curved House is a modern residence with distinctive lines. Conceived in plan as a U-shaped form, this residence features a courtyard to allow for a private retreat to an outdoor pool and a custom fire pit. The master wing flanks one side of this central space while the living spaces, a pool cabana, and a view to an adjacent creek form the remainder of the perimeter. A signature masonry wall gently curves in two places signifying both the primary entrance and the western wall of the pool cabana. An eclectic and vibrant material palette of brick, Spanish roof tile, Ipe, Western Red Cedar, and
various interior finish tiles add to the dramatic expanse of the residence. The client’s interest in suitability is manifest in numerous locations which include a photovoltaic array on the cabana roof, a geothermal system, radiant floor
heating, and a design which privileges natural daylighting and views in every room.
