Cool Idea: Another Way to Work With a Landscape

Instead of melting into the landscape, the Bridge House, as it's been dubbed, holds its own, literally bridging the ravine it sits above.
This long, sleek home is built on 15 acres of Marin grassland in Northern California. Only 22 feet wide, the two-story, 5,500-square-foot two-level home's innovative design won it an Excellence in Architecture award from the San Francisco chapter of the American Institute of Architects last year.

Constructed of steel and glass, the Bridge House was designed by architect Stanley Saitowitz, whose initial design for the home, say the owners of the Bridge House, was different from that of other architects. The owners noted, in an article in Marin magazine, “Previous plans for the property had placed the house high on the hillside to capture the Mount Tam views, but by building on a low point of the property we preserved the rest of the valley for us to look up into.”
