Eco-chic Hillside House, California
SB Architects a San Francisco-based design studio has completed Hillside House. The contemporary four-storey property can be found on the hills of the Nestle Valley, California.
According to the architects: “Nestled in the hills of Mill Valley, California, just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco, Hillside House has just received certification as the first LEED for Homes Platinum custom home in Marin County, and one of only a handful in Northern California.
“This contemporary Californian property is a statement of what is possible combining luxury design while keeping sustainability a key focus.
“The contemporary Californian property – clad with beautiful, sustainable Western Red Cedar siding – is set on a steep hillside site that provides for a very vertical design with living and private zones situated on multiple separate floors. Numerous outdoor and covered terraces and balconies capitalise on stunning views of the bay and the San Francisco skyline beyond. Some of the Eco-credntials of the property include, energy star-rated Whirlpool appliances, Kohler low-flow plumbing fixtures and New World Millworks, reclaimed timber and recycled metal roofing.”
