Pebble Beach Residence Featured in Architectural Digest's October 2007 Architecture Issue

San Francisco, CA -- Taking its place among the most beautiful and architecturally elegant projects in the world, the Pebble Beach Residence, designed by BAR Architects is one of the most recent projects garnering industry accolades for the 40 year-old San Francisco design firm.

Aptly referred to as "a labor of love" by the owner, designing the residence was a seven-year odyssey led by a talented, creative and driven design team that included Principal architects Robert V. Arrigoni, FAIA and Earl Wilson, AIA; interior designer Michael Booth from BAMO and landscape architects SWA Group.

All the primary rooms of the house are arranged along the 18th fairway with views through stone colonnades and a series of loggias. The house includes expansive living, dining and kitchen spaces with carefully integrated outdoor spaces for entertaining. The primary building materials are cut limestone, titanium and teak are also used throughout the interior and exterior of the house to emphasize the connection between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The end result is a simple and classically modern residence that takes full advantage of unsurpassed views of the Pacific Ocean and Carmel Bay.

Featured in Architectural Digest's annual October Architecture Issue, the palatial estate marks the 16th design collaboration between BAR Architects and Bay Area developer Angelo Sangiacomo.
