The homeowners and architect wanted the entry mosaic to derive from the local surroundings. Hence, a topographic map of the 42-acre property serves as the entry to this modern concrete and steel residence tucked among the hills and oak trees of Western Marin County. The house and outbuildings, major trees, swimming pool, and water table are all represented in the stone and glass mosaic.
