In the kitchen, functionality was the highest priority. The SDS team chose durable materials such as Neolith and quartzite counters, which allow hot dishes to be placed directly on its surface, to make cooking simple. Additionally, a designated desk and over-sized island created the perfect space the children to work, while a hidden butler’s pantry allowed for a seamless transition for entertaining.
After two years of thoughtful collaboration, this home has been brought to life for a Silicon Valley entrepreneur and his family. Reaching 12,000 square feet, the home boasts the latest in amenities including 12’ high ceilings, 9’ doors, and European oak flooring.
Overall, the home was designed to be cozy, yet sophisticated. However, formal spaces allowed the SDS team to introduce touches of glamour with high-end fixtures, hand-blown glass pendants, and rich wall treatments.
Entertainment for the whole family was also of the upmost importance. The lower level features a full theater, wine room, bar, and gaming space. With two full guest suites finishing it out, it has every comfort necessary for a night in.
Even with a neutral color palette, luxurious materials with contrasting texture and geometric shapes created unique, contemporary spaces throughout the home and established a timeless backdrop for the family’s lives.
