West Dry Creek Road, Sonoma, California
This new contemporary Wine Country passive home is beautifully sited and anchored on two levels into a vineyard ridge. It features photovoltaic solar panels on the main roof, engineered wood products for the framing, reclaimed lumber siding on the exterior elevations, stained concrete floor over radiant heating throughout the interior and a board formed fireplace element at the Living Room. Concrete planter beds function as both structure and soft transition from an expansive pool terrace to the vineyard. And a main roof trellis combines with a site trellis to provide ample area for indoor/outdoor entertaining during the warm Summer months.
