Montara House

This is a self-built house by the owner’s family and it has an excellent view overlooking the Pacific Ocean, being located south of San Francisco. To be more precise, the house is placed on a small hillside, with some zoning restrictions. The house has a unique shape to maximize light and view. The weather there allows you to have an indoor/outdoor living.

To simplify the appearance and to save some money and resources, the house is build from two primary materials, inside and out was hammered, site-cast concrete, and some Peruvian redwood owners imported on site. The 12 inch concrete walls, gives you a massive fence exposed inside out. Also, to minimize the costs the windows doors, flooring and millwork were hand built by the owners.

The ceiling is arched, Peruvian redwood was used here, from one end to another. To minimize sunlight in front of the hose the redwood was tipped down. A glass clearstory box cuts through the center of the house, providing light and ventilation, and also a stairway that leads to the roof deck
