Jack Hillmer, Architect

Modern Bay Area Style, 1958

75 Upland Road, Kentfield, CA 94904

75 Upland was designed by the late architect Jack Hillmer who was one of the founders of ‘Bay Area Style’. With his years as an aeronautic engineer, his homes feature cantilevered decks and weight baring structure that show as a piece of art. In this home the bearing structure is a fireplace. Hillmer only designed 10 homes in his career but is followed by many art and architecture enthusiasts. His homes have been featured in the both San Francisco and Dallas Museum of Modern Art. The current owners bought the home in 2004, expanded and updated the home for modern day living. The addition is connected by a bridge to marry old and new construction. The original home was taken down to the studs and updated with new radiant heat, air conditioning, Lutron keypad lighting, CAT 5 wiring and appliances but the architectural integrity of the original Hillmer design remains.
