San Carlos Modern

Clean and unabashedly modern lines define this hilltop home with a spectacular view. A subtle color scheme and simple geometric forms build to a crescendo. Simple and clean, interesting and serene.

Palo Alto California Mediterranean

The goal from the start was a "Net Zero" energy home that draws its inspiration from the residential architecture of Bernard Maybeck, Henry Minton, and Julia Morgan - an early California Colonial/Craftsmen Style. Photo Voltaic Solar panels, a highly insulated building envelope, radiant floor heating, and a passive solar design helped create a truly sustainable home nestled under three fabulous oak trees in the Palo Alto hills. A beautiful and drought tolerant, all California Native landscape,
and a rainwater catchment system make this project a model for today's California living environment.
