Built adjacent to a scenic corridor in Sonoma County, California, the new home takes its cues from the surrounding agricultural vernacular and reinforces the rural nature of its surroundings. Conceived as a complement to existing barn structures on the site, the house completes a gateway to the property beyond. The approach to the structure allows the house to be seen from all sides before arriving at the private auto court at the rear. The public face of the home addresses the adjacent roadway and its private spaces and main entry are gathered around the rear courtyard.
