Beyond the Golden Gate, between the small towns and suburban communities of the San Francisco bay, is Casa Bridgeway.
More than a classic American: a rich villa with swimming pool inspired by the chalets occupied by rangers in the most famous American national parks and which exploits the raw materials of stone, wood and glass to reflect itself in the Californian landscape.
As the name suggests, Bridgeway has the appearance of a bridge that connects the most extreme areas of the house and which, through the large windows and the modularity of the spaces, manages to connect exteriors and interiors, lightness and solidity, architectural and natural elements.
The thin and refined OS2 75 profiles in painted galvanized steel conform to the particular three-dimensionality of the building, drawing lines and geometries that elegantly define the wild character of the West Coast.
