Alta Robles Land Planning and Architecture
Tiburon, CA

For this green development in California, Kao Design Group conducted a careful analysis of bio-resources and the natural qualities of the site to maximize the developable land while protecting resources and habitats. Each lot has a protected zone where the land is left untouched. Working with a talented team of planners, civil engineers, landscape architects, and construction managers, Kao Design Group brought this project through a rigorous public review process. The residences are designed as a series of deeply terraced residential building types to respect ridge restrictions, minimize visibility, and emphatically connect the buildings to the landscape.
