A huge amount of volume and light were freed from this compartmentalized 1970’s house. The main living space is a long rectangle that stretches from a front deck overlooking cypresses to a two level patio with a view of the bay. a light monitor illuminates the center dining area and adds to the subtle variety of ceiling heights. In the kitchen, custom oak cabinets wrap around a marble and stainless steel island with a section of glass floor revealing a wine cellar below. A small bath and closet combined to become a spa bathroom with Japanese soaking tub. The exterior was reinvented with new materials in a charcoal palette; Shou Sugi Ban siding, bronze anodized windows, Resibond sheet metal, and Hardiplank siding.
