The house is located within great surroundings, on Wolfback Ridge Road, in Sausalito, California. The south-facing ridge top site abuts the GGNRA, and is a gently sloping swale with panoramic views from east to west including the East Bay hills, the city of San Francisco, Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, and the Pacific Ocean. The site flows into the natural habitat of the Headlands, and affords maximum solar exposure, bracing maritime breezes and cloaking fogs.

Minimal and honest expression of materials and speed and simplicity of construction result in a modern form clad in a combination of glass and 100 year-old locally reclaimed redwood, and topped with a living roof. Green elements are integral to the overall design principles and ultimate expression of the house
