Sustainability meets luxury outdoor living in this Pacific Heights residence. In collaboration with a luxury home developer, our team designed spaces that enhance the site’s stunning views of the Gold Gate at the same time that they offer comfortable, intimate enjoyment of the garden. The rear yard ensures maximum outdoor living through generous access, gracious patios, outdoor kitchen, show and fire features. An elevated infinity edge pool and shaded deck offer grand views of the city, bay and bridge beyond—and rich materials and lush planting act as a beautiful foreground to the vista. All of this was achieved with a strong commitment to sustainability, reflected in the project’s LEED Platinum rating. Permeable paving is deployed throughout the site and the planting is drought tolerant with water efficient irrigation.
