A ROOM FOR ALL SEASONS
This modern addition to a traditional wood-shingled Sonoma County farmhouse creates a much needed indoor / outdoor room for daily life. Conceived as a room to extend out into the landscape, the design reflects the structure of the hardwood decks, which contrast, rather the replicates the existing residence. In winter, warmth and light from the low-lying sun floods the room, but in the heat of summer, the room provides much needed shade. Walls of windows can open, to allow breezes in, and the fireplace adds cozy warmth on grey winter days or cold summer evenings typical of this northern California climate.
