Featured on Houzz: 12 Ideas From Stunning Fall Gardens

Fresh off the press from Houzz...

There's no doubt that the Waverley Street Residence has a very inviting yard. It has an outdoor living area with a fire pit table, and a dining area (not shown) that is large enough for a party. Native plants thrive with very little irrigation. We love how this yard is nestled between two homes (both of which we designed), so it almost feels like a secret garden. Thanks, Houzz, for the shout out!

It's great to see the Marin Avenue Residence courtyard featured in this article, because we couldn't agree more that this outdoor space is an oasis of calm. The simple material palette, curated landscaping, and water-feature-as-art-piece are all contributors forming a cohesive whole. And it doesn't hurt that you can see the Golden Gate Bridge when seated at the table!

Glulam beams are up at Inverness Way Residence

Aug 3, 2016 by Hiromi Ogawa

The vaulted ceiling over this living, dining, and kitchen will be white, but these dropped glulam beams will be stained to add warmth to the room. We are also excited about the two ridge skylights that will span across these beams. More soon!
