Jutting spars of Douglas fir trellis are echoed by spiky agaves and yuccas in a terraced front garden.

View from the living room into the kitchen.

Inspired by "Day of the Triffids," this house recounts the march of the "Stuccoids," the stucco bungalows of the flatlands, up into the Berkeley Hills to battle the "Maybecks," the eclectic wood-clad houses designed by Bernard Ralph Maybeck in the early 1900s.
