Architect: Rushton Chartock Architects
This was a very modern and “Hi -Tech” home, built on a beautiful hillside overlooking Bodega Bay. Intended to be used as a weekend retreat, it has two full master bedroom suites, a sauna, an enclosed garden in the entry sun room, and was built with a very high level of attention to detail throughout. Koa, teak, walnut, and ash cabinetry were all from our woodshop. The project involved extensive custom glazing and a variety of innovative construction techniques and materials and was an early example of integrated passive solar design.
