Cole Valley Residence by Jensen Architects
The Cole Valley Residence responds to its unique hillside site while looking outward to the city and bay beyond. Located along the slopes of Twin Peaks, the single-family home is situated on a steep hill that was a key element in the massing. The home is a series of five stacked volumes, including a heavy and articulated concrete base meant to give the impression of being embedded in the earth. A floating main living level maximizes the horizontal expression of the house, taking advantage of the unusually wide 50-foot lot, and provides a picture window to stunning San Francisco views. Other levels shift and terrace with the hillside, providing a variety of spaces and giving access to multi-level rear yard patios.
