Set in the hills above Portola Valley, the design of this contemporary residence creates a seamless blend of indoor/outdoor space through expanses of operable glass walls. This light-filled space is contrasted with modern textures of stone, metal, wood, and water. The modern steel and wood structure is lean and low-profile to complement the clean-lined aesthetic. High-performance steel plate shear walls and moment frames are designed to meet Immediate Occupancy standards following a major earthquake.
