Today we feature an exceptional mid-century residence designed by local architect Jack Robbins. Robbins was educated on the East Coast so his influences were somewhat different than many of his local contemporaries that trained at Berkeley, but his innovative experiments in Bay Region modernism were no less impressive. Here he has organized four vaulted volumes around a central core, each one splaying out on a different axis much like a pinwheel. It is a particularly elegant solution that allows for light to enter almost every room from multiple sides while still maintaining privacy and good separation of spaces.
