Remodeling and Home Design

Sonoma Family Residence & Organic Farm

This Sonoma Valley homestead with two wings, a flanking pool area, and a detached guest cabin were created with passive solar design. Straw bale walls supplemented with solar collectors, mass storage and a variety of energy and water efficient measures are integral to the design, including a living roof, greywater and rain water harvesting. This house achieved LEED for Homes Platinum certification, a result of integrated team effort & idealistic client vision.
