450 Architects designed our house in Sausalito, completed in 2007. In 2012 we were not looking to move to Sausalito, rather our original idea was to move to the city to be close to our grown children. We saw the house, fell in love with it and from that point could not look anywhere else. It has a sense of place on the hillside, amazing and ever changing views and every detail of proportion and materials is thought through to provide a warm, aesthetically pleasing and functional home. The house had been empty for a while and after moving in we found certain repairs where necessary. At the same time we wanted to add a deck trellis which although part of the original plans had not been realized. While only a small project we appreciated the support from the firm…the involvement right down to the smallest details, general responsiveness, the willingness to help at the city, attending visits on site to monitor progress. Actually it’s more than that, it’s the feeling that the house is still part of 450 Architects.
