Crane Residence sites on a one-acre site, located directly on the Pacific coast in northern California is intended to be a weekend family retreat for its Bay Area owners. Site improvements included the utilization of the numerous on-site boulders and the creation of a large flexible gathering space. The borrowed landscape was considered, creating a natural flow between the existing environment and new architectural elements.
“The architecture and the setting of the home was so beautiful that we needed to make sure we complemented that.”
“Pavers and gravel create a transition between the built space and the existing bouldered landscape.”
