Amara Residence

Atherton, California

This new family home in Atherton is located on a flat lot with many beautiful, mature trees along the perimeter of the property. The front elevation is composed of simple forms of wood and stucco, creating an elegant presence along Atherton Avenue. The main house plan forms an L, with the public spaces an the ground floor opening up to expansive green areas and a pool. Deep cantilevers with trellises in combination with new trees create lovely dappled light for the outdoor living areas. The project also includes a detached garage that interlocks with the main house and a detached guesthouse which anchors the short end of the linear pool.
