Edmonds + Lee Architects’ Summerhill Residence sits high in the hills of California wine country. Its distinct forms with raised corners mold an outdoor living area and courtyard.

The orientation of these buildings maximizes usable outdoor space and serves to connect natural and man-made elements. Save this picture!© Bruce Damonte PhotographyInterior and exterior spaces extend outwardly to the rolling hills of the surrounding landscape. This connection is harbored by the design to both connect and blur the line between interior and exterior. Full walls of glazing and expansive wooden decks reflect a desire to heighten the experience of being in the “country”. Save this picture!© Bruce Damonte PhotographyThe main and guest houses provide an aesthetic juxtaposition while capturing their own views of the California scenery. Mirroring one another, these two structures vary in dimensionality yet feel interconnected. This also works for the detached garage, and can be attributed to a mixture of common materials and a formal language that is consistent throughout each entity. These raised corners of the residential cubes add both formal interest and further serve the architects desire to blend interior and exterior spaces.

A play between solid and void relating the buildings allows for privacy even within close vicinity. By night, slits of light show from underneath the masses of these structures. Punctured windows peek out from beneath the wooden overhang of the two story main house. The three structures rise as a geometric counterpart to the surrounding forests. Exterior wooden cladding along with exposed planes of glazing and concrete merge in order to create both distinct and dialectic design.Save this picture!© Bruce Damonte PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessEagle Nest Hut Proposal / Piero CerattiArticles(RE)Configured-Assemblage / WE-DESIGNS.ORG, LLC and XP& ArchitectureArticles Share Photographs Year:  2008 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Area:  4095 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeEdmonds + Lee ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasResidentialHousesKenwood3D ModelingUnited StatesPublished on August 11, 2011Cite: “Summerhill Residence / Edmonds + Lee Architects” 11 Aug 2011.
