Architect Helen Hald's humble Kirk home still awes

"I like the proportion of the glass panels; and I like the lack of horizontal," says architect and homeowner Helen Hald. "Horizontal lines are just about the most disturbing thing when you're looking out at a natural setting. Vertical lines flow with the trees. The beauty of this house really is that those window panes are simply an expression of the structure." The pictures are photographs of San Francisco Bay saltponds by Robert Campbell.
