Sunset Overlook

John Lum Architecture as Architects

Opening this dark, claustrophobic 1970’s spec house to the spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean was the premise behind this comprehensive house remodel. A dramatic, sky-lit gallery welcomes the visitor, leading to a step-down great room with unparalleled views of the Farallon Islands beyond. 

Above, a grated steel and aluminum bridge tempers the sunlight, connecting the master bedroom suite to the children’s bedroom wing. An adjacent outdoor courtyard provides a tranquil respite for the study, while doubling as a protected play area from the inclement weather.

A new three-story, cantilevered glass bay was added at the rear, accentuating the view. Mitered glass edges dematerialize the boundary between indoors and out, imparting a spectacular aerial perspective. The new simplified plan includes a family room with open study, and a ground-level recreation room, offering this active family plenty of room to grow and live in.
