Surrounded by rolling acres, this courtyard house provides an informal style living experience referencing early California architecture mixed with clean lines and modern amenities. were responsible for the design of this elegant, timeless home that embraces its site in Portola Valley, California. This contemporary courtyard house was designed to maximize the surrounding views by punctuating the walls with factory glass windows throughout—enhancing the indoor-outdoor connection.

Materials of natural woods, stone and plaster were selected to add to the elegance of the home, helping to create a harmonious flow from one space to the next. The exterior facade features steel windows and doors giving a dramatic architectural appeal, with stucco on both the walls and chimneys and topped with a copper roof.

A floor-to-ceiling stone clad fireplace is the focal point to the space, with comfortable and inviting furnishings symmetrically positioned around it, offering a wonderful space to enjoy relaxing conversation. Wooden flooring gives a natural, organic appeal to the space, while a textural area rug helps to not only delineate the space but add comfort underfoot.
