Project year: 2012 | Location: Tiburon, California

The original house, built in 1960, was literally falling apart. A white, shingle-style, east-coast feel was the starting point.

About The Project

The mansard roof design was eliminated in favor of a tripartite roof, allowing views over it from the uphill neighbor. The interior ceiling was opened up to the roof, giving a visual expansion of space and allowing better views across Richardson Bay. The massice landscape rebuild and outdoor lannai allow for true indoor-outdoor living. Radiant slabs, photovoltaic panels, zero-VOC paints and stains complement the architecture.

“I have worked on 3 big projects with Phil which should tell you something in itself. The last one was a complete tear down and Phil helped me manage the project while I was on the East Coast. He is a complete professional, helped with some very creative solutions and is extremely easy to work with. He listens very well and helps the client hone in on exactly what he/she is thinking. His attention to detail is really strong as well. I get many people asking me who I used for my house. I recommend him unconditionally.”
