HG Residence

San Anselmo, CA

Situated on private 1.5 acre gated knoll top, this Marin County resort home, with extraordinary views, was conceived by an internationally renowened luxury hotelier. He had two wishes: one to modify the existing house to realize a more contemporary and structurally sound house and two: to build a pool and summer house into the hillside. 


We brought in our team of Landscape Architects and Structural engineers who specializes in steep slope properties. The existing house was redesigned to include white oak floors, mahogany trims & high end finishes throughout, a new chef's kitchen, oversized meedia room, and a sumptuous master suite with spa like bath. A seperate resort like summer house has its own designer kitchen, fireplace and sleeping loft. The pool area was a much more complicated project. We called on the geometries of the hillside as seen through our computer modeling program as a way to form the project. The design utilizes inifity pools that spill down the hillside and create a variety of water experiences. Views are maintained at all times.
