Contemporary Garay House, California


              
California-based design studio Swatt Miers Architects have designed the Garay House project. Completed in 2010, this contemporary property can be found in Tiburon, California, USA.

According to the architects: “The owners wished of one day transforming their low, one-storey home into a setting befitting their spectacular site perched above San Francisco Bay. Their dreams began to be realized in 2005 with the design of an extention, coupled with the complete renovation of their existing contemporary Californian house.

“The site is a half-acre south-facing hillside parcel, with unobstructed views of San Francisco Bay to the south, east and west. Responding to the physical conditions of the site, the new contemporary Californian house is almost entirely opaque on the north side where a new entrance motor court is defined by a rhythm of five ‘free-standing’ stone-clad walls. Slivers of glass separate the stone panels, creating a strong rhythm while giving little hint of the extraordinary spaces and views on the other side.
