west sebastopol residence
In this modern, West County farmhouse, the contemporary lines of the home are thoughtfully carried into the landscape with careful design of the paths and patios. The hard lines begin to soften with poured concrete and natural stone, plant material joints, sitting in a broad expanse of crushed stone. These paths provide easy, barefoot access to and from the pool. The neighboring vineyard structure provided inspiration for the lines of ornamental grasses. These structured rows fade into the whimsical planting plan surrounding the property. The floating cube steps link the pool house to the pool and are sewn into the landscape with a mix of California native grasses and chaparral.
