Swatt Miers Architects designed the Hudson/Panos residence, a modern vacation home located in Healdsburg, California. The home overlooks the Dry Creek Valley from its perch on top of a bluff on the nine-acre plot.
The architects were instructed to build an "informal" vacation spot for a young family. The home is arranged into two separate wings, which lie parallel to one another. The wing in the east end houses the children's bedrooms, as well as the guest quarters. Meanwhile, the west wing features the home's social spaces and master bedroom.
The horizontal plan is countered with clerestory glazing, which allows an abundance of natural light to flood into the home. The kitchen looks out to the 50-foot swimming pool that further accentuates the home's long, linear form.
