This residence was designed for clients who wanted a modern home that was perched in the vineyards of Napa Valley. One hundred and eighty degree views were achieved through the placement of curving floor to ceiling glass walls in the great room and master suite on the second floor so your eye can glide over the vineyards. A full length ridge skylight of translucent Kalwall casts a soft glow to the interior without letting in the unwanted summer heat. An open central staircase allows light from the skylight to spill down to the first floor. The rusticated first floor facade utilized quarried stone to compliment the rich soil of the local vineyards, while a wing like roof flies over the nearby vines. This elegantly modern residence blurs the lines of the interior with the natural scenic beauty of a preeminent wine growing region.
