Architect: Fernau & Hartman
This was a very challenging and unusual home built in the hills overlooking the Valley of the Moon in Sonoma County. Designed in a very modern architectural style by a well-known and highly innovative Bay Area architectural firm, this home presented a variety of highly technical challenges. The project was featured in a variety of publications including the San Francisco Examiner, Sunset Magazine, and both Global Architecture, and Progressive Architecture magazines. The project included all site development as well as the separate guest house “Pavillion”, and a trellised, poured concrete carport and front entry walkway.
