> MOSSWOOD WAY RESIDENCE AND POOL HOUSE
CLIENT: Private Client
LOCATION: Atherton, California
SIZE: Main House – 6,000 Square Feet, Pool House – 1,100 Square Feet
This large, tree-lined, flat lot in Atherton provided a wonderful opportunity to build a generous shingle-style house and pool house. The house and pool house were commissioned eight years apart by two different clients. The house has an open plan with abundant natural light and generous spaces opening onto a trellised outdoor patio and fireplace. The pool house opens onto the pool deck and patio areas, and blends with the main house while reflecting a decidedly more contemporary look and feel.
CAW was able to meet the needs of the two different clients and provide a vision for linking the two projects through a common use of materials and natural light, and by dissolving the indoor/outdoor relationship of the major spaces. The buildings were oriented for good sun exposure and privacy, and to preserve the open green space of the lot.
