Built on a narrow, steeply sloping site, this 2,000 square foot home is located near an earthquake fault. Working with geotechnical and structural engineers, Domain Design Architects designed this home not only to capture the breathtaking views of Rich Passage, but to withstand a major earthquake.
The 2-bedroom + study home has an attached 2-car garage with a 1-bedroom accessory dwelling unit above. The length of the home is oriented to maximize passive solar gain and to provide area for future photovoltaic panels. Sustainable features include enhanced insulation, high-performance windows and recycled materials.
Terraced garden walls and a multi-level stair greet visitors, while a lushly- landscaped entry courtyard at the top of the stairs provides a framed view of Rich Passage before entering the front door.

Above the garage, a 780-square foot, 1-bedroom accessory dwelling unit with its own entrance is located.

A new covered breezeway provides an entry portal to the south-facing courtyard and connects the garage to the existing kitchen.
