With great excitement, we are sharing views of a project which has been in development for several years. We are honored to be working with Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital on this 12-bed Hospice House. The project is currently in the Planning stage. This is a unique program and a wonderful client team with the sincerest community benefit in mind and heart. Many thanks to all those involved in creating the vision for the project. Renders are by Pristereo's Zach Meade.

Early in design phases we work with clients to seek a balance between functional needs and volumetric considerations for each space. The images here depict a design in progress for a main living area and kitchen within a new home. The digital design work gives us a framework for the design choices to follow. From these visualizations and other inspiration, we will next identify material, color and detail that reinforce project goals and ambitions. At the same time, the simple black & white images continue to remind us of the power in simple choices and restraint. We're looking forward to continuing to develop this space with our amazing client, what a privilege!

Details of the Rolling Oaks residence are coming together as the project is nearing completion. Here is a preview of a few moments where project materials come together. The house is connected to the landscape and the details and finishes support the color and warmth found in the setting. Some of the furniture is now arriving and the house is beginning to feel like home. We are very happy for our client and their family and anticipate a complete move-in in the next few weeks!

The Bennett Ridge Residence is progressing nicely. The photos here show current construction progress. Framed views of the landscape are taking shape, including those from the main living area capturing the surrounding trees and oak woodlands, as well as the master bedroom vista of the Valley of the Moon (Sonoma Valley). We're excited to see what's next for this hilltop post-fire rebuild project.

Each project site has its own character. The setting for a new residential project in the area of Bodega is compelling and unique. A short distance from the project site, are the coastline and the Bodega dunes. The landscape is composed of wind-swept grasses and brush, and spotted with sculpted cypress and pine. Underlying the vegetation are sand dunes, altered by the winds and making this a changing ground. The sound of the nearby surf crashing permeates everything. The colors and materials of the site are valuable inspiration for the project. Here we've collected a few samples of debris from the beach to represent the colors and materials contained in the landscape. How might these materials contribute to the project?

I wanted to share some views of a new wine storage building completed last year for Napanook wines produced by Dominus Estate.  The 6600 square-foot refrigerated warehouse building is located on winery property in beautiful Yountville, in the heart of Napa Valley. The matte-finished dark metal cladding blends with the oak-studded landscape and with existing utility and agricultural structures at the site. The structure is a pre-engineered metal building by Butte Construction, with GMH Builders as the General Contractor. A rooftop solar array produces power to off-set energy use by the winery. Many thanks go to our client and project team for envisioning and completing the new facility.

We are the Design Architect working with a small, rural school district in Sonoma County on the addition of 3 new structures to their elementary school campus. The project consists of a Multi-use building, a Kindergarten & Science classroom building, and a new canopy structure at the campus entry. Below is a progress view of the Multi-use interior. The design recalls lofty agricultural barn interiors, with expressive structure, and expanses of large windows to capture panoramic views of the surrounding vineyards and countryside near Healdsburg, California. We are teamed with Executive Architect Dan Hardin.

Views of recent construction progress on a new residence near Santa Rosa. The original home was lost to the Tubbs fire of October, 2017. The view from the new living room is taking shape. It captures Bennett Peak and Taylor Mountain where the northwest outlet of Sonoma Valley (image left) joins the Santa Rosa Plain (image right). We are thankful to work in this beautiful place with amazing clients.

This project design is a rebuild of a residence lost to the Tubbs fire in Sonoma County during October, 2017. The new plan simplifies the previous multi-level layout by placing the family's living spaces on a single level. The arrangement captures views of the farm and valley below. The project is beginning construction now and we're hoping our client will be able to return home soon. Sometimes building means more.
