Warm Modern in Noe Valley-Exterior
Warm Modern in Noe Valley-Exterior
Mark Brand Architecture
Mid-Century Modernism inspired our design for this new house in Noe Valley. The exterior is distinguished by cubic massing, well proportioned forms and use of contrasting but harmonious natural materials. These include clear cedar, stone, aluminum, colored stucco, glass railings, slate and painted wood. At the rear yard, stepped terraces provide scenic views of downtown and the Bay Bridge. Large sunken courts allow generous natural light to reach the below grade guest bedroom and office behind the first floor garage. The upper floors bedrooms and baths are flooded with natural light from carefully arranged windows that open the house to panoramic views. A mostly open plan with 10 foot ceilings and an open stairwell combine with metal railings, dropped ceilings, fin walls, a stone fireplace, stone counters and teak floors to create a unified interior.

The pool and lower patio had to be artfully set within the extreme slope by which both were made more dramatic. The slope allowed for the creation of a magnificent negative edge pool and waterfall that spills down to the walking path. Along this meandering path numerous vistas and viewpoints were created by intricately constructing large limestone walls and terraces. The lower exposed aggregate patio is the perfect place to spend a beautiful Michigan evening by the fire looking over the lake and listening to the quite rush of the pool’s falling water.

This intimate, interconnected landscape gives these homeowners three spaces that make being outside a joy. Low stucco walls create a courtyard near the front door that has as unique sense of privacy, making it a great place to pause and view the pond below. Under the deck the stucco walls wrap around a patio, creating a perfect place for a cool refuge from hot summer days. A custom-made fountain is integrated into the wall, a bed of lush flowers is woven into the bluestone, and a view to the surrounding landscape is framed by the posts of the deck above. The rear patio is made of large bluestone pieces. Grassy seams between the stone soften the hard surface. Towering evergreens create privacy, drifts of colorful perennials surround the seat walls, and clumps of Aspen trees define the entrance to this enchanting outdoor room.

Granite boulders and cedar logs form a beach cove on a steep Bellevue property on Lake Washington. Stone steps descend from the terraced yard, offering easy water access. The softened shoreline, lush with native plants, is fish-friendly while protecting the property from wave action.
