Insulation: SDI Insulation, Inc. Cabinet maker: Anderson's Quality Woodwork, Serge Anderson PROJECT INFORMATION Project name: The Bridge House Project location: Marin, Calif. floors. We also thought of it metaphorically since the bridge is the place in the house where you can look back across the Golden Gate Bridge to San Francisco, where the homeowners both work. e house is located in Marin, California, north of San Francisco on a hill overlooking the Bay with views to Mount Tamalpais. Originally built in the 1970s, the house required a major renovation to fit the needs of a young couple with a growing family. Situated on a dramatically sloping hill, the home's original floor plan did not reflect the nature of its surroundings. It was a single story house that seemed to turn its back on the views and deny that it was built on a slope. e home's original entrance was situated on the back and up a set of stairs. One had to walk around the house and up the stairs to the second floor to enter the home. Access to the lower level playroom and living spaces below was through a narrow, circular stairway. We were tasked with reprogramming the floor plan to improve traffic flow and to increase accessibility and communication between living spaces throughout the house. e main living area PRODUCT INFORMATION INTERIOR Doors: TruStile with Baldwin Hardware Tile: Slate, China multicolor Flooring: Cumaru wood flooring Stone: Slate ledger stone, China multicolor EXTERIOR Single roof membrane: Versico Folding glass doors: NanaWall Systems Siding: Brazilian Ipe wood Stucco: Integral color stucco Doors: Bonelli Enterprises KITCHEN: Stone countertops, backsplash: Caesarstone Slate countertops: Westcountry Sink: Franke Faucet: Hansgrohe Cooktop, warming drawer: Dacor Exhaust hood: Vent-A-Hood Ovens, dishwasher, cappucino maker: Miele Refrigerator/freezer: Thermador Wine refrigerator: Vinotemp BATH Toilet: Toto Shower & sink faucets: Grohe Sink: Duravit BEFORE Prior to the remodel, the home did not take full advantage of the views nor its location on a slope.
