Sustainable Residence by SB Architects Nestled in the Hills of Mill Valley, California

Take a good look at this next residence. Try to imagine how it feels like to walk around in its vast rooms and see every detail that San Francisco-based SB Architects perfected when designing the place. The contemporary Hillside House – a simple name that expresses both the natural surroundings and natural materials used for construction – is certified as the first LEED for Homes Platinum custom home in Marin County. Using sustainable Western Red Cedar siding, the architects covered the four story home in a successful attempt to design a perfect exterior. Located on a hillside overlooking the San Francisco Bay, the residence takes full advantage of the steep area: balconies and terraces offer beautiful panoramas of the city and large windows further connect the inside space to the surrounding nature. “Every inch of this LEED Platinum custom home has been designed to maximize its sustainability, in direct response to the site, trees and views. Consequently, this home lives far larger than its actual footprint, but with an impact that is far less.”

    Beautiful house! Love the details…especially the “rope knots” knobs in the bathroom. Thanks for sharing!
