Montoya Residence - San Jose, CA

The Montoyas are entertainment industry entrepreneurs who celebrate football season with the members of their extended family, and who have a love of contemporary Spanish/Mediterranean architecture and contemporary features and details. Mark made a bold purchase of an eight foot tall silver statue of an NFL wide receiver reaching for a catch.

We designed Mark's and Karen's house around this statue that symbolized Mark's and Karen's love of football, as well as their committment to family and friends. We developed an elegant, gently curving stairway up to the master suite, with a large and deep skylight that is centered on the sculpture and is expressed in the dramatic curved stair enclosure visible from the street.
