Healdsburg Vineyard Residence

A fire set the stage for this intervention on an old family home. Set on 200 acres of Vineyard, all that was salvageable was the old gable roofed above the bedrooms and the riverrock hearth. We began with the gable and combined it with a series of sloped and flat planes. The new roof forms provide for clerestory windows that bring abundant natural light to the space. A flat, wooden ceiling over the living area continues outside seamlessly housing the surrounding porch. The long flat eave opens the view across the vineyard, to the coastal range and provides the ideal location for an integrated solar array. Bands of salvaged cedar at the base of the house support climbing wisteria, binding the house to the landscape as it rises from the vine rows.
