The rural site offers sweeping views of rolling hills and vineyards with clusters of old growth oak trees. In response to the local context, Walker Warner Architects designed a contemporary farmhouse reminiscent of agricultural board and batten structures. Emphasis was placed on creating an exterior gathering space in the form of a u-shaped courtyard where people could enjoy the outdoors while being well protected from strong afternoon winds.
