Healdsburg’s characteristic residential language of shady porches, light painted clapboard siding, and fertile landscapes are reinterpreted in a contemporary language.

Each of the linked L-shaped units is completed to form square walled courtyards in which the interiors merge through sliding glass doors wrapping the entire lower level.

The enclosing ‘walls’ are the outer boundaries of the court space. Inside and outside are blended and ambiguous, stretched to the limits of the site. Lattices shade and lap pools create cool.

On the second level, three bedrooms overlook the courtyards. These elements float on the glass below.

Pocket sliders dissolve the rooms to light and air. A simple palette of materials is used throughout.

Walls are white-painted metal siding, lattices white painted bar grating. Dark concrete for hardscape merges with charcoal porcelain tile floors.

The aim of the project is to increase density but retain rural neighborhood scale.
