The benefit of the highly undulating landscape of the San Francisco area is the spectacular views that many homeowners are afforded within the city's suburbs. The Flip House by Fougeron Architecture takes full advantage of its elevation and sloping backyard to incorporate a complete wall of windows for its uninterrupted vista.

Working beyond the boring parameters of two-dimensional facades, the design team installed the impressive fenestration so that the whole back side of the residence can be opened up. The great panes protrude and create a pleated appearance as three vertical sections of the multistory dwelling. The Flip House by Fougeron Architecture draws in an abundance of sunlight during the day and seems to extend the length of the communal rooms within.
