ODS Architecture in collaboration with JCD Builders has designed this impressive modern refuge set in the rolling hills of Saratoga, California.
The design seamlessly integrates cast-in-place-formed concrete walls and a low-maintenance material palette on the exterior.
Located in a remote area, the site necessitates various on-site utilities, including a well with three storage tanks to hold water, which also serves the fire sprinkler system.
The dwelling is meant for infrequent visits by the owner and was designed to be a serene and contemplative oasis, ideal for reading and seeking solitude.
A simple rectangular structure, the house extends over the gently sloping hill, offering breathtaking vistas of the picturesque countryside.
Nestled on thirteen acres, this two-story home consists of 3,000 square feet of living space with three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The entry catwalk has a cantilevered roof overhang edged in aluminum with steel railing and metallic tile walls.
