Our featured home today is an extremely late design by perennial Bay Region favorite Beverley David Thorne. Thorne would move away from his trademark steel structures as the years passed and tastes changed. Here he uses large glulam beams to create two open pyramid-topped pavilions connected by an elevated bridge. Of course he still manages to incorporate a bit of exposed steel if one looks closely enough – a small nod to the material that had made him so famous thirty years prior.
