Glen Park Residence
The Glen Park Residence is a shining example of respectful modernism integrated into an established
San Francisco neighborhood. The steeply sloped, compact site combines many of the challenges of infill development. A balanced massing, responsive to neighboring properties, promotes transparency, light, volume, views and outdoor space.
The dramatic projecting bay window, an interpretationof San Franciscan tradition, floods light deep
into double volume, open-plan living areas. An operable glass wall extends the living space outdoors. Expressed structural concrete retaining walls contribute character. Ascending the theatrical staircase,
the sensation of climbing a tree-house is amplified by views through Eucalyptus trees, to the
canyon park beyond.
A high quality building envelope outperforms title 24 by 23.7%. Construction features including radiant
heating, home automation, dual-flush toilets, high efficiency appliances and renewable materials.By
day, the living experience is extended outward. At night, the house becomes a transparent light box, expressing the simplicity within.
