Cedar cladding and large stretches of glass feature in a weekend home called Sonoma Red wine Country, which has been bigger by United States studio Feldman Architecture.
The job lies in the Sonoma County town of Healdsburg, within the heart of northern California’s red wine area. It sits on a 40-acre (16-hectare) residential or commercial property with sweeping views of the terrain.

The initial house, completed a couple of years back, was developed by San Francisco’s Feldman Architecture– and the studio was tapped to broaden the house.
“The 2nd phase of design at Sonoma White wine Country works to transform a simple and easy, one-bedroom retreat into a dynamic escape for a growing family,” the group said.
Feldman Architecture remodelled the residential or commercial property
Your home was originally made up of two perpendicular bars, forming a L-shaped plan. A wing running east to west consisted of a garage, media space and bed room suite; a wing running north to south held a shared space for cooking, dining and lounging.
For the growth, the architects included a central volume and extended the east-west bar, forming a T-shaped house. It now totals 3,634 square feet (338 square metres).
The kitchen is created to spill onto a rear terrace
The kitchen was relocated to the main volume. Developed to spill onto a rear balcony, the kitchen can accommodate household meals and larger gatherings.
A bed room volume– consisting of a sleeping location, study and restroom– was included on the east side. The new volume neglects a meadow and opens onto a balcony with a fire pit.

“The elegant addition perfectly expands the house’s personal wing east, placing an updated, secluded main suite overlooking expansive views of the valley floor and remote hills,” the studio stated.
The current task also included the production of a detached studio for yoga, pilates and media viewing. Located close to the main home, the 436-square-foot (41-square-metre) studio acts as a “soothing hideaway tucked into a woody grove”.

The new additions continue the house’s existing vocabulary of shed roofings, dark cedar siding and ample glazing. Interior surfaces include plaster walls and concrete flooring.
The house is planned to offer a strong connection to the landscape.
One standout feature is a series of 4 extra-large, counterweight glass doors in the great room, which were produced as part of phase one. When opened, the doors make it possible for the room to flow onto outdoor patios and supply “comfortable outside living in both hot and cool weather condition”.
Your home is intended to use a strong connection to the landscape
Founded in 2003, Feldman Architecture has actually created many domestic projects in California and beyond. Others consist of a Santa Cruz beach home clad in restored wood and the restoration of a “wacky circular home” perched on a hillside near Silicon Valley.
