This Gabled House by Field Architecture Makes the Most of Napa Valley

After completing the design for a communal wine-making facility, architectural studio Field Architecture ventured into an aged wood home project for a couple that desired a restful refuge from urban life. Situated on Howell Mountain, the main leading concern for the firm was to make the most of the picturesque Napa Valley and its vegetative surroundings.

Field Architecture focused on the irregularities of the property site—"the slender plateau [...], the subterranean rock formations [...], the juxtaposition of forest and vineyard." As a result, the aged wood home boasts a trio of gabled roofs, a connective element of a low plinth with timber-framed volumes and a steel and wood framework that is supposed to tie all the independent elements together.
