This residence is about trees, trees, trees. The lot is covered with Spanish Oak, Live Oak and large old growth cedar. Add to that some extreme topography. The home's first and second levels are cut into the hillside to limit the height of the slab. Also the client wanted a music studio that could be accessed separately at grade, which is accommodated by the third floor music studio.
