East Sonoma Estate – Main Residence & Pool House
The last building to complete the family wine country estate, the colors and materials of the main residence and pool house were chosen to compliment the palette of the previous projects. Added to the mix were Nichiha fiber cement panel siding and Thermory wood siding. These materials accentuate the variety of forms from stacking, asymmetric boxes with deep horizontal lines to the steep gable-roofed spine. The emphasis is on an indoor-outdoor lifestyle made seamless by the large, multi-paneled slider and pivoting glass doors, and consistency in flooring from inside to outside. Living spaces all open and face out onto the pool to create a modest, luxurious oasis.
The central living space of the main residence is defined by the high ceiling and the layering of the partial walls and their geometric cutouts. It offers a subtle luxury with its thoughtfully expressed use of line, lighting, and structure that both contain the space and reveal it. This is further highlighted by the featured elements of the plaster fireplace volume with unique stone surround, plaster powder room pod, and the elegant furnishings and artwork.
