Architect Robert Swatt adores hillsides. The principal at Swatt/Miers Architects looks at each incline and downslope as an opportunity to marry nature and design. His latest project in the Los Altos hills is an example of Silicon Valley grandeur on full display. Here, high-tech amenities and luxurious finishes abound within a gracious floor plan totaling around 10,000 square feet. It’s a prime example of Swatt designing a space that blur the lines between indoors and out. “Each building is knitted to a site in a way that almost seems inevitable, to create exciting spatial experiences,” Swatt said.

- Modern marvel in Noe Valley
By Jordan Guinn - Saturday Sep 30, 2017
Sumptuous finishes and dramatic outdoor spaces define architect Chris McMahon’s latest creation in Noe Valley. All told, there are two view terraces and three fire pits, as well as patios off the great room and master suite. Modern design permeates the five-bedroom residence. “I love Noe Valley for the contrast and complementing between the homes, there’s such a mix between Edwardian, Victorian and modern,” he said. “There’s a lot of character.” Steel, glass and timber strike bold finishes in rooms with grand proportions and an abundance of natural light. High-tech finishes include Nest climate control, security cameras, Legrande light switches and Sonos-ready wiring.
