Project Overview

A modern retreat – home, guesthouse and carport – is tucked into the remote hills above Calistoga. Modest industrial materials, careful siting and landscape design connects the structures with the land. Located on a steep, wooded site, the compound is revealed through an approach up a long road and winding driveway. The drive leads to a spacious courtyard, carefully designed to accommodate emergency vehicle turnaround. From this courtyard, an entry walk passes through a clipped hedge and garden beds filled with native grasses and Iris to the entry level of the house. The lower main level of the house opens onto a terrace where a sixty foot lap pool serves to connect both the home and guesthouse with the outdoors and expansive views of the valley below.
