Modern Mission

Sonoma, CA

Site Planning and landscape architecture were provided for this new Sonoma home, anchored in the corner of a 10-acre L-shaped property. A strong east/west axis was developed through the house that penetrated the once impassable ‘nature preserve’ in the back. A trail was developed to access vernal pools and a mixture of exotic and native trees. The front driveway delivers guests through a stand of established Eucalyptus trees to a parking area from where they are led into a walled garden. The internal space of the court protects the outdoor use areas from the wind while providing privacy and an edge to the developed gardens. Within the courtyard are terraces, a covered dining area, and a water tank with spillway. Penetrations in the home and walls frame desired views, while the remaining grounds are left as is, making the inhabitation of this property a reality for the owners.
