Letter-Timeless home built for a life of several hundred

years.

 

This complex of four structures on the hilltop

location of Bill Graham’s old compound (recycled for

this project) nestled within mature trees overlooking

one of the Bay Area’s most stunning 360 degree

views.

 

Perhaps the finest rammed earth construction in the

country, this home is a testament to an unusually

dedicated collaboration between architects, builders

and the vision of the owners.

 

Traditionally-formed rammed earth

Sprayed earth construction (pise’)

wetlands water treatment options.

Electrical testing for electromagnetic fields (EMFs)
