From the architect: San Anselmo Residence is a new 4,500sf modern house. After years of seeking the perfect site to build their retirement home, the couple settled on a knoll overlooking Mount Tamalpais. Vistas extending in all directions are carefully composed through massive openings that allow for the living areas to expand to the outdoor terraces. Egyptian Limestone floors and cedar ceilings add warmth to the expansive spaces. The board formed concrete walls are tinted to blend with the natural soil and compliment the Cor-ten steel stairs delicately anchored to a wall leading to the entry.
