Suzanne Residence

Suzanne Residence

Upon entering the house, low ceilings are punctured with tall light filled spaces. Windows, doors and clerestories in the living areas allow a gentle natural light deep into the home’s interiors, creating a rich interplay among the internal spaces, exterior yard, and the landscape. The house interior flows to the exterior for enjoying the warm and benign climate of Silicon Valley. The exterior gardens are private and tranquil.
