Beach House Exterior

Stinson Beach House By WA Design Architects

Stinson Beach house was built in the small town of Stinson Beach is one of the few Marin coastal towns where the rocky coastline yields to a beautiful five mile long beach. Just north of San Francisco is the largely suburban and rural County of Marin. The bay side has been developed with upscale suburbs, but with zoning rules the west side, which borders the Pacific Ocean, has remained an agricultural and rural preserve. The Marin coastline is one of green rolling hills that slope down to the rugged palisades that meet the Pacific.

The owners of the home made this home for weekend family retreats. They were strictly limited by both budget and zoning regulations to a home of 1400 square feet. Space was at a premium. By developing the house plan around a great room, the couple were able to create an inviting and large environment for all the activities of our extended family and friends.

With an eye towards sustainable design, open-cell foam insulation, concrete floors, natural ventilation, and recycled materials were used. The ceiling decking was milled from wood salvaged from the old Stanford University gymnasium. The south-sloping roofline provided ideal orientation for an extensive photovoltaic and solar thermal array. The annual energy needs of the home are entirely supplied by the rooftop arrays.

The massing that emerged in the design process was an elevated south-sloping roofline with extensive clerestory windows that accessed the views to the ridges above. Corrugated Galvalume metal, paired with cement board siding, created a sturdy and economical exterior shell for the house.
