    The building currently identified as “Bubble House (Bay Area of California, USA)” is better-known locally as the “Flintstone House”, among others. Its original color was off-white, and one can find photos of it on the Web as it looked before. It was designed by architect William Nicholson 1976 and constructed of gunite (shotcrete) sprayed on steel rebar frames over inflated balloons. Located in the hills on the western edge of Hillsborough, California, it is best seen from the Eugene A. Doran Memorial Bridge when traveling toward San Francisco on Interstate 280. Its exact address is 45 Berryessa Way, Hillsborough, California.

    “mushroom house” when driving north on 280.

    I loved this place before they painted it Orange. My siblings and I were always on the lookout for the Flintstone House on the way to SF for ball games. Fantastic that it’s on here
