Project Details 

This residence with a panoramic view of the San Francisco Bay created many challenges in structural design and detailing. The biggest challenge was reusing the deep foundation system abandoned twenty-five years prior, to create a luxurious residential estate on an extremely tight hill side location. Large retaining walls were designed and constructed utilizing a combination of drilled piers and soil nail system. Summit collaborated extensively with the architectural and construction team from the beginning of the project. The end result is the transformation of an abandoned ruin to a magnificent residence.
