Kentfield, California’s Kojima House Seamlessly Fuses Indoor and Outdoor Spaces

The Kojima House, designed by Swatt + Partners, is a 6,500 square foot remodel and addition to a pre-existing home in Kentfield, California.

The 1.5 acre site is surrounded by mature landscaping on all sides, affording a sense of privacy that is rare with new homes. Nestled in a clearing, the home has unobstructed views of San Francisco Bay to the east, the valley of Kent-Woodlands to the south and the mountains to the west. Materials, both inside and outside, including wood boards and travertine slabs, have been carefully selected to complement each other and help create strong indoor – outdoor connections and enable seamless transitions.
