Ridge House

This new house is sited on a north-facing ridge overlooking the Dry Creek Valley. The house orchestrates the occupation of the landscape by navigating across and around the ridge in plan and section. Considerations for severe environmental conditions of sun and wind inform the language of the protective, undulating roof. All rooms open to the outdoors, reinforcing the primary relationship to the landscape. A large deck and continuous exterior walkways create outdoor rooms and circulation paths which expand the experience of the interior. Additional site design includes a new pool, spa, outdoor shower, olive orchard and bocce ball court. Interior images available by appointment only.
