High Design & High Sustainability

Designed by Scott Lee, majority partner at SB Architects, as his personal residence, every inch of this home has been designed in direct response to the site, trees, and views.






The four-story home – clad with beautiful, sustainable Western Red Cedar siding – provides for a very vertical design with living and private zones situated on multiple separate floors.

Working its way around the trees, driven by the views, and defined by the intimate relationship between indoors and out – numerous outdoor and covered terraces and balconies capitalize on stunning views of the bay and the San Francisco skyline beyond.
