Woodside Hilltop Contemporary
Building onto — and into — a steep hillside in the Santa Cruz Mountains, this spectacular contemporary boasts 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean, walls of floor-to-ceiling windows, and exposed steel I beams. The extreme nature of the site requires colossal grading and engineering as well unique sealing and waterproofing to protect against the elements. Heated concrete floors and wood features throughout add warmth. Slated for completion in 2019.
