The 2016 Sunset Magazine Idea House was conceived as a tribute to the Bay Area: it’s quirky and innovative. Its also has a bit of an edge and an interior style that exudes elegance and warmth.
Architect Robert Nebolon, HGTV's current Face of Design, was chosen for this prestigious project. He created a 5-level, 3,600 square foot home clad in a shell of modern siding, perched on the Oakland hills. Utilizing modern design outside and in, and featuring both new and vintage pieces in the interior (by designer Lauren Geremia), the home is a luxurious retreat from the bustle of the Bay.
Breathtaking views of the hills and the water beyond are a highlight of the house, which boasts six decks. There are decks off the master bedroom, media room, guest room, living room, as well as a rooftop entertainment deck.
"I think that everyone is/was blown away by how stunning the "sky terrace" turned out. There aren't too many outdoor spaces like that one and the tall glass guard-rail made it extra special." said Mr. Nebolon.
The spectacular views from each deck was preserved by installing DesignRail® aluminum railing system in silver, with glass infill. The rooftop deck features a concrete and stone fire feature, so the owners and their guests can enjoy the outdoors even on cool nights.
The architect wanted easy-to-maintain railings that would showcase the view outside, and would also be stylish enough He had this to say about Feeney:
"The Feeney project manager was great to work with and provided suggestions on how to accomplish my vision. I would recommend their system to anyone." -- on Houzz (read the whole 5-star Houzz review)
