Set at the northeastern edge of Tiburon’s peninsula overlooking San Francisco Bay, a striking display of Japanese architecture overlooks boat slips and the sea.Alfred Klyce, a fourth generation Mill Valley architect who trained in Japan, designed 225 Martinique Ave., a four-bedroom revolving around an open-air courtyard.A raised entryway past the pocket doors serves as the official entrance to the house, with a tiled section beside the sliding panels is for depositing shoes before coming inside.Japanese temple builder Hiroshi Sakaguchi of Ki Arts in Occidental designed the gate, employing traditional no-nail construction with exacting precision.Sakaguchi’s craftsmanship extends into the front yard, where sliding pocket doors fashion a traditional front door.Other elements of Asian architecture — specifically, the Chinese philosophy of feng shui — embed themselves into the home.The tall, narrow hallway makes two turns before arriving in the public area.Here, the kitchen, family, dining and media rooms all access the courtyard through sliding glass panels.A northern orientation frames views down the boating slips, beyond the home’s waterfront expansive deck.Four-bedroom, three-bathroom bayfront home in Tiburon’s Paradise Cay neighborhood.Japanese architectural details permeate the construction perched atop bedrock and staring down the length of the channel.
