In Marin, California, this modern home designed by architect Stanley Saitowitz sits in marked contrast to its natural surroundings. The long, narrow stucture spans a rocky ravine from east to west, bridging two sides of the hilly property. The strict linear shape of the home is balanced by its exterior Cor-Ten cladding. The steel cladding was allowed to weather naturally, which resulted in a deep red patina of surface rust. Large glass panels alternate with the Cor-Ten, allowing residents views from high above the ravine. At one side of the home, a sloping concrete driveway leads to an entrance courtyard, while a pool runs perpendicular to the home at the opposite end. Interior spaces reflect the exterior aesthetic in their linearity.
