Healdsburg House

This residence for a family of four is located on an oak covered hilltop above the Alexander Valley. The design is a response to the pastoral views from the site and the clients wish for a structure that recalls the traditional farmhouses of the region. Abundant outdoor space in the form of trellised, screened and open porches allow for year round enjoyment of the home’s exquisite natural setting, while interior spaces are related to the site through carefully framed views of surrounding oaks and the hills beyond. Porches and overhangs coupled with natural ventilation and thermal mass, keep this house cool without air conditioning throughout the hot summer months.
