Unexpected Design Twists: Monte Serino Residence in San Francisco

Modern House Architects completed the design for Monte Serino Residence, a latest retreat located in San Francisco, USA. Structured on two levels, the residence includes a chain of open and closed spaces, envisioned in close connection to the encompassing landscape. The backside of the home opens up towards a big infinity pool and the luxurious greenery beyond, while lateral views reveal the neighboring shore. Glass doors, windows and an unexpected void (shaping up right into a creative terrace) on the second level contrast visually with the wooden wall paneling.
An open plan front room with tall ceilings sets the tone for a luxurious atmosphere. Each interior seems to expand outdoors and merge with the natural colors of our environment. Wood is present throughout, emphasizing at the traditional character of a few of the smaller rooms. Concrete and steel add a dynamic twist to the scheme. Large corridors framed by bookshelves ensure transition between spaces.
