The following projects have made it through the design incubator, and are on a journey from the theoretical into the realm of the tangible.


family home - sonoma county

This one is personal. The family home of Tracey Klein was destroyed in the Tubbs fire and her parents asked us to design its replacement. Located in a cul de sac, the only way to get everything we wanted was to create a wedge shaped house with a courtyard in the center. We split the house into a bedroom wing to the south and a public wing to the north. A tall window-filled hall connects the bedrooms to the main living space.

HOUSE ON A HILL - sonoma county

One of the many properties destroyed by the Tubbs fire. The owners, former clients, asked us to help redesign their residence. Here you can see the lower floor concrete foundation walls along with the form boards for the main floor foundation. In the background you can see the detached shed building.


farmhouse fit for a chef

A new start for Santa Rosa chef, his wife and son after the 2017 fires. The two story garage is in the foreground with the house to the rear. Not shown yet are the Koi pond, pool and pool house. But don’t think that we forgot about the kitchen. It is about the size of the lower floor of the garage!


Something old, something new

We tried to incorporate a few of the characteristics of the previous residence into this new design for a previous client. One of those things was a long hall. Now don’t get me wrong, halls aren’t always our cup of tea. However, with plenty of views out both sides and access to everything in the house, we think the owners are going to love this one even more than the original.
