A San Francisco couple invited us to design a family retreat that they had been contemplating doing for some time. They owned a 3.5 acre site in Sonoma, California, just north of the City.
The existing site included a house and barn that would be reserved as a workshop. We cleared the site and designed a 4,200 sf modern courtyard house with a 55’ lap pool as a central feature. The house and guest house wrap around the central courtyard at this inwardly focused getaway.
With a planned orchard and a quiet landscape setting the Doe Road house was designed with expansive deck areas and extended roof eaves to provide shading for the indoor/outdoor design. Natural materials ground the house within the tranquility of rural Sonoma.
