From its hillside location, this property has spectacular views of Mount Tam to the west. Through the removal of the interior walls and the addition of folding glass walls, these views are made accessible throughout the main living level. These large folding doors provide access to a covered porch which wraps around the entire main level. The covered porch comfortably connects the house to the various terraced areas of this steeply sloping site. In addition, the porch also shades the main living level and passively reduces the substantial solar heat gain this house experiences due to its location and orientation.
