515 Tahos, Orinda

515 Tahos, Orinda

This Orinda mid-century is mostly a pretty unremarkable oversized ranch, except, that is, for the large central atrium that runs the full depth of the home.  This space alone makes the house remarkable. It is a towering volume reminiscent of the Eichler peaked atrium models, but with a more unusual roof shape. While its full geometry is masked in front, from the back it looks much like an inverted paper airplane.
