1642 Las Trampas, Alamo

John Nance was perhaps the most flamboyant of our local Third Bay Region designers. His work is not widely known today, but during the 70s, his highly exaggerated sculptural forms made quite a splash. This late example in Alamo is especially showy with a tram and a waterfall and even a bit of postmodern flash for good measure.

    Chris- I’ll take this one.

    My architect friends are all looking at it. The best comment: “I think I’m headed into organ failure.”

    The painted HVAC is genius, and my geodome client comments that she likes that. Not bad.

    Great find!
