Field Architecture created a community of buildings that extend the property’s agrarian history while simultaneously producing an intimate home for a growing family, keenly attuned to a modern lifestyle. In the northeast corner, a windbreak of tall trees interrupts the valley’s otherwise extensive expanse. Our family of gable-end structures nestles into the enclaves created by the trees; inspired by the property’s existing hay barn, each of the gable roofs are supported by timber and steel trusses.
A majestic valley oak tree forms the starting point for a central axis threading through the buildings, tying the structure to the land. Steel and glass window walls pocket along each of the buildings, opening the interior into the courtyard, and extending the house’s outdoor living terraces into the vineyard.
