Blurring the line between indoors and out to meet our client’s wishes, the H-shape plan of the house was designed to maximize opportunities for fusing the two.

Full-height glass doors, which envelope the deck, slide open to extend the interior living spaces into the surrounding, nested outdoor spaces.

The efficiently planned 2-story home with partial basement includes five bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, formal living and dining rooms, a casual living room adjacent to the kitchen, a media room, a wine room and plenty of wall space for art display.

The house, located in Silicon Valley, a mecca of technology…is a perfect synthesis of the interior-exterior connection.
