This gorgeous San Anselmo property looks like a European hillside retreat.
The client wanted to take advantage of the gorgeous site but also manage the heat since it sits directly in the sun for most of the day.
PA created a shade element using an arrangement of permanent, cantilevered umbrellas that when raised simulate a room within a room.
The pool surround was sand finish, scored concrete with terraced concrete retaining walls.
PA also built a custom outdoor kitchen with stainless steel cabinets.
Beyond the pool area, is a landscape tie staircase that winds down between raised vegetable gardens and delivers you to a secluded one room studio.
