Gluckman Tang's Recent Residential Projects Featured in Introspective Magazine
...There is another side to the firm that Gluckman founded 40 years ago. (Tang, who has worked with Gluckman for more than 20 years, became a name partner in 2015.) It has completed a number of residences where art isn’t the focus. Take the house in Sonoma that Gluckman created for tech entrepreneur Tim Mott. The design draws inspiration from three things no artist could create: the movement of the sun across the property, the local prevailing winds and the inspiring views of nature provided by the setting. Gluckman gave the house a strong central axis, embodied by a kind of breezeway that leads directly from a guest house and studio suite to the dining room of the main house. From there, it proceeds to a terrace that offers glimpses of the San Francisco skyline, some 40 miles to the south. “You have to know when to hang a picture on the wall and when to let the view be the picture,” he says.
