The Kojima House is a 6,500 square foot remodel and addition to a pre-existing home in Kentfield, California.
The 1.5 acre site is surrounded by mature landscaping on all sides, affording a sense of privacy that is rare with new homes. Nestled in a clearing, the home has unobstructed views of San Francisco Bay to the east, the valley of Kent-Woodlands to the south and the mountains to the west. Materials, both inside and outside, including wood boards and travertine slabs, have been carefully selected to complement each other and help create strong indoor – outdoor connections.
A subtle mix of board-formed concrete, integral stucco, large travertine stone, and stained cedar wood siding complement the home’s modern design. Extensive structural steel within the structure creates pavilion-style overhangs around the home.
