Architects: Field Architecture
Project: Sentinel Ridge farmhouse
Location: Howell Mountain, California, United States
Photographs: Matthew Millman

Description by architect: On a dramatic mountain site high above the Napa Valley, we approached the project with a reverence for this particular protected land, and a strong prioritization of its multiple sensory experiences. We continued our understanding of architecture as being in spatial dialogue with a landscape, producing a design that became a vehicle through which this land’s nuance and character could be revealed. We relied on building information modeling to produce a straight-to-fabrication design, reducing the time on-site and minimizing extensive site impact. We see the use of technology here as a re-orientation towards a deep understanding of sustainability, one present not only in material and site but also construction.
