Here are the single-story home Caretakers Residence was designed by Aidlin Darling Design. residences sited on the forest’s edge at the base of Sonoma Mountain, this 3,200 square foot home overlooks a rolling vineyard and the valley beyond.
According the Aidlin Darling Design:
Placed between a forested mountain and rolling vineyard, a rammed-earth wall demarcates the primary spaces of this single-story house. Built of native earth and woven among existing trees, this monolithic wall anchors the building structurally, ecologically, and experientially. Floor-to-ceiling glass completes the building envelope and captures panoramic valley views. The glass and earth walls work together to orchestrate indoor-outdoor living and to provide passive heating and cooling.
