Stanley Saitowitz is known today as one of the leading modernists currently practicing in the Bay Area, but his body of work is not a pure statement of new modern ideals. His tastes have evolved over time and through the chronology of his structures we are able to see the growth and development of his mature style.

The home we feature today was built in the early 90s when postmodernism was still the intellectual darling of the design community and Saitowitz too seems to converse readily in that idiom with his undulating curves and playful checkerboard of aluminum panels. But his material choices also lean toward the neoindustrial which provides a touch of modernist texture to the home that was not always present in the work of his contemporaries. It is an intriguing insight into one of the current heavyweights in our local design community.
