Methven Residence

San Anselmo, California

Set deep into a steep and heavily wooded rural site in San Anselmo, the Methven Residence weaves around and embraces a magnificent Heritage Oak tree. Like threading a needle, the design twists and turns between tree canopies, in five levels, so that all major spaces focus on the grand oak, and open to exterior patios cut into the hill or terraces that hover above.
