Our featured home today is an exceptionally well-preserved residence designed by local Bay Region modernist John Hans Ostwald. Ostwald’s homes tend to be angular, highly logical, and full of carefully conceived spaces. This example is no exception with its prow-shaped living room and public and private axes that intersect at the spiral entrance stair. It is an excellent demonstration of Ostwald’s clarity of vision and great talent as a residential designer.
