Atherton Residence

Atherton, CA

Size: 10,400 sf

Completed: 2014

Market: Single Family Residential

Scope: Structural Engineering

Designed as a family compound in the upscape community of Atherton, this multi-building residence consists of a main house, a separate pool cabana, and a garage. Architecturally the design takes inspiration from surrounding topography, with primary spaces framing expansive views out into the landscape. Structurally this translates into strategically placed steel moment frames that allow for large openings and expansive interiors as well as robust designs for wind and seismic loads. One of the homes most striking features is an oversized dining room and adjacent great room. Both have large openings to the exterior, with outdoor fireplaces and gathering areas.
