Slot House

Shaped by the client’s lifelong appreciation of modern architecture, the design of Slot House brings a bold minimalism into the rolling landscape of Los Altos Hills.  A sunken entry courtyard transitions visitors into the home, serving as an introduction to the unfolding of the house’s levels down the gradual slope of the site.  At the heart of the home, at the base of the descending progression, the great room offers 180 degree views of the ridgetops in the Foothills Open Space Preserve, immersing the clients in their landscape from sunrise to sunset.  A story-spanning slot links the private rooms above to the living areas below.  Throughout the home, the crisp lines of vertical and horizontal apertures frame glimpses of the sky, the landscape, and the oak trees beyond.
