Above and Inset: This functional, sunlit home, takes full advantage of its bucolic site in Portola Valley, California. It features a butterfly roof that opens the main living spaces to views, ventilation, and natural light.
OPPOSITE: The public and private sections of the home are separated by a shift in geometry that is further accentuated by differentiated cladding materials. Organic stucco and natural wood siding bring warmth and order, enhancing the overall experience of the home and complementing the beauty of the site.
