San Francisco-based architectural practice, Shands Studio, has  designed the San Anselmo House project. The luxury home is located in Marin County, California, US.

According to the architects: “Envisioned for direct access to the outdoors and visual connection to the surrounding landscape, this 2,450 sq. ft. house was designed as two perpendicular volumes stepping down the hill.

“The expansive windows and sliding glass doors allow for the exterior patio and cantilevered deck to be an extension of the living spaces.

“The upper Level cantilevers over the lower level on the south side utilising passive heating and cooling strategies. The upper level was also designed with an inverted hip roof to maximise exposure for solar panels while visually concealing them from the street.”
