Garay House

SWATT | MIERS ARCHITECTS en tant que Architectes.

The owners have lived in Tiburon, California for many years, dreaming of one day transforming their home into a setting befitting their spectacular site perched above San Francisco Bay. 


The site is a half-acre south-facing hillside parcel, with unobstructed views of San Francisco Bay to the south, east and west. The house is almost entirely opaque on the north side, where an entrance motor court is defined by a rhythm of five ‘free-standing’ stone-clad walls. Slivers of glass separate the stone panels, hinting at the extraordinary spaces and views on the other side.


The progression of space begins with a compressed entry, leading to a higher circulation spine. Bathed in light from clerestory windows and skylights, the spine overlooks a living, dining and kitchen ‘pavilion’ with world-class views of the Bay. Frameless glazing and cantilevered roof extensions seamlessly connect interior space to exterior space, blurring the boundary between the two.
