6000 sq. ft. residence, designed by Gary Tucker Architects,
is nestled into a wooded knoll high above Napa Valley with
views to San Francisco on a clear day.
The house was conceived to capture the magnificent views – all
the way to San Francisco on a clear day -- yet integrate
seamlessly into the hillside. The furniture layouts have
been carefully conceived to take full advantage of the view
corridors created by the architecture.
Guests arrive at a terrace which descends through a dramatic
rock and water garden to the main entry next to a quietly
flowing waterfall. Sliding doors disappear into walls creating
an open flow of space to the exterior. The modern interior
spaces are articulated with massive masonry elements that
impart a quietly powerful mood.
As color consultants we helped develop an interior palette
using organic materials throughout this unique interior
design. Locally quarried Napa stone, red cedar paneling,
Chinese slate flooring, custom hardwood cabinets and granite
countertops continue the palette into the creative contemporary
furniture. The architectural lighting design is managed through
a central control system.
The sensitive detailing employed throughout the house creates
a serene repose evoking the calm of an Asian landscape.
