Wooden house and guest retreat off the California coast

Stone Residence-Malcolm Davis Architecture-01-1 Kindesign

Stone Residence is a house and guest house composition of iconic shed volumes designed by Malcolm Davis Architecture, sited between Highway 1 to the East and the end of a cul-de-sac to the West in San Francisco, California. The Eastern facade lends a sense of privacy and protection from the highway, with a smaller entrance, high windows, and thickened wall. The exposed framing of the thickened wall creates a floor to ceiling feature for books in the living room. The Western facade, with large glass barn doors and generous windows, opens the house to the garden, The Sea Ranch, and the ocean beyond. Connecting the two facades, an enclosed central porch serves as a dual entrance and favorite gathering space. With its pizza oven and easy indoor/outdoor connections, the porch becomes an outdoor kitchen, an extension of the main living space, and the heart of the house.
