Nestled at the base of Sonoma Mountain, this 200-acre site marks a ten year collaboration of site evaluation, master planning, vineyard and cider orchard planting, ancillary structure development, and the Main House. The Owners interest in cartography influenced the Main House siting and other site elements reflecting in a true north-south orientation. Windrows further reinforcing this axis.

A rectilinear reflecting pool travels along the entire length of the house, modulating climate and blurring the boundaries between landscape, art and architecture.

A refined palette of materials and honed composition of built elements, create a strong and deliberate relationship between the inside and outside spaces.

CUSTOM DESIGN ELEMENT

The Main House’s teak pool bench is a custom MFLA design that “floats” by the pool edge on metal rods against a field stone backdrop.

 

The Sonoma Vineyard is a project in which agricultural acumen combined with a strong horticultural expertise, and great attention to detailing and craft, resulted in a minimal, agriculturally rooted assemblage.
