This big house sits in the hills above the city of Sonoma in a protected-oak meadow. Sonoma Residence is designed by Gluckman Tang with 5,800 SF in size. Completed in 2010, this house consists of three separate single-story pavilions that interconnected by a series of terraces.
This residence overlooks the owners’ vineyard with stunning bay views to the south. It consists of three separate single-story pavilions that interconnected by a series of terraces. These terraces descend down toward the lap pool and valley. The stunning views can be seen from inside the residence through the glazed walls.
Alaskan yellow cedar trellises and monolithic board-formed concrete walls provide protection from the sun in summer while the cement board rain-screen exterior cladding further blends the residence well into the landscape. There is a large skylight that aligns with the central axis of the main house, offering abundant light into the living area while uninhibited views are created by the floor-to-ceiling glazing.
