TWIN PEAKS

GEOFF GIBSON | KAILEEN YEN

HARSHA PELIMUHANDIRAM

Neighborhood: Twin Peaks Site Area: 4996 Sq. Ft. Floor Area: 5015 Sq. Ft. Completion Year: 2018

This home is nestled at the foot of the hill on a unique detached triangular lot in Twin Peaks. While keeping most of the original 1940’s structure intact and adding one additional level with wraparound terraces and a roof garden to capture the panoramic views, this custom home offers 5,015 SF of indoor-outdoor living space for a young, growing family. The dynamic relationship between the natural environment and architecture begins at the front entry as the outdoor lighting, pavers and rock garden continue to the indoor foyer. On the second floor, the family room opens up to a curved, south facing outdoor yard. The refined interior stair connecting all floors floats alongside a multi-story window wall that captures the wild green hillside. The façade utilizes durable, metal siding and slats to help frame and screen views of the natural environment while also responding to the floor plan within. Designed by Winder Gibson Architects, in close collaboration with the owner and Interior Designer, Derek Dean and with the GC, The Toboni Group, the house juxtaposes refined architectural details with natural elements to create a harmonious flow between indoor and outdoor, far and near views, dark and light, hard and soft materials.
