“There’s something uniquely magical about California’s northern coast, where wildflower-covered cliffs meet the Pacific and gray whales seasonally leap from the waves. This landscape provided a dynamic setting for San Francisco-based Walker Warner Architects to create a home for a couple with nostalgic ties to their East Coast roots and a new desire to embrace more contemporary, minimalist living.
Set on a scenic plateau, a cliff covered in wildflowers and windblown grasses, this sprawling residence is like a geode with an exterior steeped in classic America, which hides a clean, luxurious interior. The asymmetrical pitched roof, shingled siding, and shed dormers all reference the classic Cape Cod style, while the extensive glass and sleek modern interiors place this home in the modern design line. Walker Warner architects have repeatedly demonstrated their ability to apply their style to different environments, drawing on cultural and geographic terrain to create seamless homes that meet the needs of refinement, relaxation and regular use.”
