450 architects - Sonoma Residence

The owners of this modest 2,300 square foot country home wanted to minimize their impact on the Earth and establish a lasting connection to nature. The project employed local craftsmen and used natural, recycled, locally sourced materials. The sunroom features an earthen mud floor made from the soil of the site! The house employs passive solar design concepts; the sunroom, situated at the center of the house, captures the warmth of the sun and radiates it throughout the living spaces. With sustainable building techniques, sensitive attention to the surrounding environment, and framed views of the exterior from every interior space, this house celebrates its site and connection to the land.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This 300-square-foot sunroom is the only new addition to the house. "It used to be that the way the whole house functioned, the nicest views were from a bedroom but the bedroom didn't really open to the view," Parker says. "[Now] throughout the house there are linkages to the garden and landscaping." The floors are made by From These Hands using mud taken from the home's site. "It feels great underfoot," Parker says.
