San Francisco-based practice Feldman Architecture has constructed a modern cabin in the hills above the Sonoma Wine Country in California. The new home, called Sunrise, was designed to respond to and reflect its remote yet lush surroundings. The “glass house” is made up of two monolithic concrete forms, while glass walls on three sides of the home connect the inhabitants to their hilly environment.
The minimalist interior of the home aligns with the striking natural landscapes, which includes the adjacent gardens and orchards, as well as the distant Mt. Saint Helena. The material palette consists of bleached Douglas fir and white Carrara marble, with accents of bronze, blackened steel and Claro walnut. Sofas and chairs are upholstered in subtle black and gray tones, while wood bed frames, tables, chairs and cabinets bring warmer elements to the home. Outside of the Sunrise house, steel columns stretch upwards to support the sunshade and thin metal roof, and contrast with the delicate panes of glass.
