Barrel House Tavern wins IIDA NC Award

The tenth annual IIDA Northern California Chapter Honor Awards program was held last Wednesday at the Fox Theater in Oakland – the awards program aims to encourage new ideas and techniques in the design and furnishing of interior spaces.

Barrel House Tavern was a recipient of the “PLAY” Honor Award, along with Aidlin Darling Design for Chronicle Books. We could not be more thrilled to be in such great company and take home this prestigious award!

Located on one of the most scenic waterfront lots in Sausalito, Barrel House Tavern occupies 5,000 square feet on Bridgeway Avenue. With 140 seats, the restaurant features an enormous Carrera marble bar, a cozy lounge, wood fired pizza oven, and waterfront seating with breathtaking views of the Bay and San Francisco beyond. The building itself has a rich history: Built in the 1900’s, the space was once the original ferry terminal that shuttled passengers from Sausalito to San Francisco before the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Madrona Residence featured in Luxe Interiors + Design

CCS recently completed this new single family residence in Seattle, Washington, which is featured in the January 2014 issue of Luxe Interiors + Design.

This house was designed as a second home for a Bay Area couple as a summer retreat to spend the warm summer months away from the fog in San Francisco. Built on a steep slope and a narrow lot, this 4000 square foot home is spread over 3 floors, with the master, guest and kids bedroom on the ground floor, and living spaces on the upper floor to take advantage of the views. The main living level includes a large kitchen, dining, and living space, connected to two home offices by way of a bridge that extends across the double height entry. This bridge area acts as a gallery of light, allowing filtered light through the skylights above and down to the entry on the ground level.  All living space takes advantage of grand views of Lake Washington and the city skyline beyond. Two large sliding glass doors open up completely, allowing the living and dining space to extend to the deck outside. On the first floor, in addition to the guest room, a “kids room” welcomes visiting nieces and nephews with bunk beds and their own bathroom. The basement level contains storage, mechanical and a 2 car garage.
