Designed for the enjoyment of the Northern California climate and the views of Richardson Bay, Mt. Tamalpais, and sunsets over the Marin Headlands, this “Mediterranean Chic” residence has multiple outdoor living areas. This three-story home is anchored into its steep hillside site with hand-cut stone walls, elegant gardens and fountains. The upper outdoor loggia has a fireplace and radiant floors to extend the seasons for outdoor living even when the fog rolls in. The lower level features an outdoor pizza oven, a fire pit, a pool and Roman spa. A stone and plaster spiral stair gracefully but purposefully moves guests between the top and bottom “public” floors and encourage them to bypass the middle “private” bedroom floor. The walls and ceilings are plastered throughout the home, including custom plaster air vents integrated into the plaster surfaces. All exterior doors, windows, balconies and louvered awnings were custom-designed out of steel and bronze.

This 5,100 square foot residence is organized around a majestic Blue Oak tree, which occupies the only flat portion of this one-acre site. With dramatic views of a Windy Hill to the southwest, the house is designed to respond directly to the natural features of the site. While breaking down the building’s overall massing, the various components of the house garage, main house, master wing and guest house at the rear - form edges of a formal courtyard anchored by the Blue Oak. The spaces of the main house simultaneously look inward to the quiet tree, canopied courtyard, and outward to the dramatic distant views. Tucked into the site’s hillside and locked into the landscape by the great room’s loggia and terrace wall, the house conceals its story scale and allows for a pool side setting to be elegantly carved into the cascading terrain, shielded from neighbors’ views and the building approach.

BCV Architects combined two apartments in a modern condominium in San Francisco’s historic Jackson Square neighborhood creating a quintessential urban home for a family of four. The apartment features a grand main salon that is 40’ square showcasing dramatic cityscape views - this room is the social center of the home. The salon serves as living room, music room, dining room and gallery for the family’s evolving collection of photographs. Opening off this room is a sky lit kitchen which features contrasting Wenge cabinetry and Carrara marble countertops. An elegant breakfast alcove completes the room. On the other side of the grand salon is the library which is painted persimmon orange and provides a strong contrast to the subdued whites and silvers of the salon. The main hall of the apartment is treated as a long linear gallery featuring both works on paper and three dimensional objects. Each bedroom and bathroom reflects the personality of the individual family members.

Located in the hills of Marin County, the Ross residence was originally built in 1906, with subsequent renovations to the house and gardens. The original Architect was John White, the brotherin-law of Bernard Maybeck, and the most recent garden design was designed by notable Landscape Architect Thomas Church.
The goal for this renovation and addition was to reinforce the design approaches of the original Architects and to respect the character, proportions and detailing of the main house, while addressing lifestyle requirements of a contemporary family of five. The rear of the house was redesigned on all three levels with a light filled breezeway added to connect the main level and the guest unit quarters. A roof access deck was enclosed and now functions as an exercise room serving the master suite.
BCV collaborated with the Landscape Architect on material selection and responses to challenging level changes for the garden. The addition of a pool house and outdoor shower provide the functional needs of the historic circular pool, and a new exterior kitchen, dining and lounge deck elegantly meet the needs of modern day outdoor entertainment.

The Owners chose this site because they wanted to live in a home that captured the American agricultural heritage of Sonoma. This residential compound incorporates one of the old barns and relies on the same building forms found on many farms and dairies throughout the Sonoma countryside. This approach allows the new compound to change the use of the site without changing the way it sits in the landscape. The old spirit of the previous farm lives on in the next generation. The house is arranged in a cluster of buildings that frame the view of the Sonoma Valley and encircle a central courtyard that is used for large family gatherings. Simple vernacular elements of the farmhouse include milk-painted wood siding, wide-plank wood flooring, covered porches that wrap around virtually every room and a large country kitchen with wood-fired cooking and an open pantry. The many covered porches encourage outdoor living, and when combined with the large screened door and window openings, are critical for providing shade and ventilation during the hot summers. Large shutters similar to barn doors protect the large glass openings during the strong windstorms experienced in the region, and become privacy screens to close off sections of the house when a separation of activities is desired.

Set amidst the vastness of great oaks and rolling hills in Northern California, this new house was designed to be a headquarters for a working cattle ranch. Its form and construction evoke the history of both the California adobe and ranch house styles with thick, whitewashed stucco walls providing a solid sense of enclosure from the openness of the landscape, and metal roofing recalling the vernacular of traditional barn structures in the area. The overall site design formalizes a haphazard arrangement of existing buildings in order to create an organized compound. The project’s layout is an Lshape, with two simple rectangular buildings situated perpendicular to each other. These structures are knit together by traditional circulation galleries, indicative of the California adobe style, to relieve the inner sanctums of the residence from the summer sun and heat. The smaller wing to the north houses guest rooms while the longer southern wing contains the main living and gathering spaces. At the corner of the “L” stands a two-story board and batten wood study, art room and observation deck.

A large outdoor room between the main house and guesthouse is oriented both toward the hedgerow and the ocean to the south.
Designed as a celebration of cooking and entertaining, with a wood burning pizza oven, rotisserie and multiple fireplaces, the house reinterprets the famous vernacular developed at the Sea Ranch, seeking to incorporate a greater level of detail while remaining sympathetic to the community.

The Emma Kellogg House was designed by Bernard Maybeck in 1899. The house takes its name, the “Sunbonnet,” from the distinctive gambrel roof that cantilevers over the front porch, above the main entry. The house was subject to several modifications over the past century. Notable features of the house had been lost or modified over time but Maybeck’s original design intent remained intact. The goal of this renovation project was to restore the original character of the house while updating the home programmatically and structurally for a family of four. Three original surviving photographs, archived at the UC Berkeley, Bancroft Library, guided the restoration to the exterior of the house. The rear service area of the house had sustained the most modifications over the years and thus became the subject of most of the modifications including the creation of a new kitchen/family room at the ground level and a master bath on the upper floor. It was important not to expand the house on its lot to preserve the compact forms of Maybeck’s design. This was achieved by creating a new below-grade level that opens onto a sunny lower courtyard. This new level houses a grand music room, guest rooms, and service functions. All of the landscaping was designed and implemented by Frederika Moller Landscape Architecture.

Located in the heart of Sonoma’s wine country, the gently sloping site offers southern views to rolling hills and is poised to offer the residence the wonders of California’s climate and beauty. The expansive property features the main house, guest cottage, detached garage, pool and clay tennis court. This weekend home was requested to be updated for a growing family of 6 to accommodate 4 bedrooms and 4 baths, in roughly 6,000 square feet. The design solution for this project was to reconfigure the home using the existing foot print to update the style and functionality for modern California living. The style of the project was based on the shingle style aesthetic that derived in spirit from the East Coast heritage of the clients. The roof forms, fenestrations and relationship between the indoors and the outdoors were to be enhanced to fully take advantage of the dramatic wine country setting and climate. While utilizing the existing building pad, the interior spaces were reconfigured to clarify and simplify the transitions between the spaces and to promote healthy family living.

Located in the Inner Richmond residential neighborhood of San Francisco, this remodel transforms a split level, two bedroom, 1,025 square foot cottage into a four level, three bedroom, 5,000 square foot home with office space and an in-law unit in order to solve the expanding space requirements of a growing family. Originally built in 1908, it was important to the owner to retain the characteristics of the original building while simultaneously taking cues from the surrounding neighborhood to inform materiality and building form as the house changed in scale. The existing exterior walls and windows remain in tact to the extent possible while the existing plaster and all new construction borrows from the shingle style homes near by. Visitors to the home are welcomed by the scale and detailing of the original front sitting room and fireplace before entering into the distinctly more modern and clean-lined addition. Each level of the remodeled home offers a distinct delineation of space fused together by the single stair tower/light well at the homes northern wall. At ground level, the “living” functions of the home spill off the sitting room and newly defined entry spine. The basement/garage houses the rooms for “play”, the second level contains the family’s bed rooms and “sleeping” spaces, and the third level provides a place for “work” that can be converted into a separate in-law suite. This urban neighborhood remodel finds space to expand in the city by growing upwards and maintaining an appropriate dialogue with the surrounding fabric.
C I T Y S H I N G L E HOUSE california san francisco,
Located in the Kenwood region of Sonoma County, the site for this residence features generous southern views of the adjacent State Park and the valley beyond. The property was once an olive tree orchard and the siting of the new residence allowed the house to be nestled into a restored orchard to provide necessary shade for the summer months. The client acquired the property to create a wine country retreat which could host groups of colleagues and friends and would eventually become a full time residence with two guest suites. The public spaces are oriented along the breadth of the site and view, and the ends are anchored by the pool deck and the master suite on opposite sides. The residence is entered through the olive tree forecourt which separates the house from the simple gravel parking area and guest suite. An interpretation of modern agricultural buildings found throughout the surrounding area, the materials lean toward the rustic and natural. The stucco clad and metal roofed buildings sit comfortably on a stone base, transitioning gently to the native landscape. Typical openings for the main spaces are pairs of metal barn doors which allow the house to integrate the outdoors, taking full advantage of the Sonoma lifestyle.

Located in the heart of Napa Valley, the Cakebread Winery stands as one of Napa’s oldest family run wineries. The new 10,000 square feet addition blends seamlessly with the existing 43,000 square feet main building, by ensuring a continuity of form and material palette. The architectural style relies on a restrained use of natural materials and textures that harmonize with the surrounding vines and cherished vegetable garden. The main floor of the addition consists of a large barrel storage room, a light filled state- of-the-art wine lab, and a series of private tasting rooms – each with their own view to the vineyards just outside. On the second floor, the new Wine Club room provides dramatic views eastward over the grapes to Howell Mountain beyond. Continuing with the natural modern aesthetic first established by William Turnbull, this winery addition was BCV’s first collaboration with architect Don Brandenburger, who designed the majority of the buildings at this Rutherford site. The Cakebread family has established their presence in the wine world by producing the highest quality wines, and providing a wine tasting experience sure to be the highlight of any wine country visit. The architecture of the project unites and enhances this wine tasting experience in a celebration of wine, food, friends and a sense of place.

Both the challenge and opportunity in reinventing this complex, multi-level, 7,800 S.F. Italian restaurant and bar located in the Shangri-La Hotel was the requirement to respect elements of the existing infrastructure and conserve where possible the scope of new construction. As a symbolic reference to the old spirit of Angelini, the basic bones of the existing architecture remain intact but are reconceived in a bolder, modern expression that plays upon the contrast of light and dark, hard and soft, old and new. A series of dramatic soaring new window boxes plug within the preserved architectural columns to define a new expression for the important riverside façade of the hotel. Within, against a cream and chocolate palette, illuminated amber toned onyx elements glow with warmth. As part of the Hotel’s larger master plan, Angelini is conceived of no longer as another fine-dining establishment, but as a distinctly more casual, hip, and sophisticated yet accessible riverside venue.

Anthology, located in the MetroWork building, is a modern supper club for downtown San Diego. The venue features Jazz, Blues, Soul and R&B performers with seating on two levels and a mezzanine. The club also features small lounges with a warm, casual elegance inherent to Southern California. With respect for the legacy of jazz, we frame it here for the next generation. By today’s standards it is unique because dinner is served during the performance. One can enjoy the simultaneous celebration of food and music. The farm-totable emphasis of the menu and the conditioned wine library are commitments to the quality of the dining experience. The long and narrow site presented an unusual shape for viewing a performance. Rather than fight the proportions, we accentuated them for dramatic effect by compressing the space and accentuating its verticality. Seating is stacked in an L-shape on multiple levels. This creates sight lines that are great for people watching as well as viewing the performance. A dramatic sculptural concrete stair connects the three open levels, and is optimally positioned for people-watching.

This 10,000 square foot restaurant and bar is conceptualized as the western expatriate’s “home-away -from-home” and is organized along the metaphorical spaces of a house. The ground floor introduces the strong axial organization of the project: a clear shot from the lounge bar through a fireplace lounge to the powerful form of the central staircase and wine bar. The upper level contains the main restaurant and continues the “house” theme with semi-private rooms around the crown of the central stair. The stringerless staircase rises within a mahogany enclosure. The structure’s skin erodes from top to bottom, the upper floor shielded by solid panels, wine storage at mid level, and an open stand-up wine counter at its base. Simple stylized forms, custom furnishings, signature steel-blue velvet drapes, and classical images mark the project aesthetic.

The complete experience begins on approach to the center, allowing the tone of the environment and experience to be set well before one enters. BCV’s concept for the Restaurant has yielded a solution for the exterior that reflects the restaurant’s unique connection to the Napa Valley with its simple and timeless stone facade made of Napa Valley Tufa Stone. The centerpiece of the restaurant is the circular bar lighted by a sculptural element which is fashioned from thousands of mica disks each unique in its color and translucence. The interior of the restaurant continues the wine country theme with rounded booths fashioned like wine barrels, rustic stone walls and floors, and several fireplaces. Two wine caves serve as private function rooms for up to 50, and the wine library serves as a smaller private dining room.
