Fascinating split-level home on a oak-nestled property in Portola Valley

modern-house-exterior

Tobin Dougherty Architects in collaboration with Sullivan Design Studio created this striking split-level home located in Portola Valley, California. Surrounded by oak trees, this 6,400 square foot home is oriented towards unobstructed views of the costal range and the Windy Hill. A deep overhanging flat roof design, along with a steeped fascia helps to preserve the classic modern lines of the structure.

The architects incorporated a Zero-Net Energy photovoltaic panel system into the design for energy-efficiency. This home also follows California Build It Green guidelines.  There are numerous sustainable finish materials on both the exterior and interior, including recycled old growth cedar and pre-fabricated concrete panel siding.

What We Love: This split-level home offers the feeling of being one with nature thanks to expansive windows and sculptural ceiling heights. Overall the design of this modern home is as imaginative as it is visually striking, from indoors to out… and that indoor-outdoor connection is perfection!

To maximize views throughout this home, the architects devised an open layout. The entryway was thoughtfully designed between the first and second levels, allowing for a gradual and almost undetectable rise in elevation as you enter the house.
