Forest Hills Landscape
San Francisco, California
Built in 1933, the house is the first recorded example of a Modern residence in San Francisco. It was designed by the husband and wife architectural team, Morrow and Morrow, the designers of the golden Gate Bridge. The house reflects the International style with a flare of Art Deco ornamentation similar to that of the aesthetics of the bridge. Longwell MacDonald used the same design vocabulary of the house in the exterior spaces to create a seamless transition between house and landscape, old and new - rough-sawn redwood clad walls and decks, concrete entry stairs and brick walls, brick steps, and accents of international orange painted wood and railings.
