Sonoma | California
The architect created the look of an Italian Villa for this custom residence in Sonoma. The main house was built previously, with ZFA performing the structural engineering. An addition to the home as well as a detached garage with guest quarters above, a pool house with office above, and guest house on the site consisted of approximately 7,000 square feet.
The design features custom hand-hewn timber roof and floor beams with concealed connections. An enclosed bridge connects the main house and guest quarters. The buildings consist of “Perform Wall” construction, which are insulated concrete wall forms that remain in place and are plastered. The forms are made from 85% post-consumer recycled content and have high R-Value for energy efficiency.
