This extended family compound sits enthroned atop a hillside site in Healdsburg, commanding views of Russian River and beyond. A modern courtyard house facing a guest house and an infinity-edge pool looks towards the northwest. Conceived as a country getaway, the home features three different master suites. Natural and renewable cooling features include overhangs specifically sized for solar control, a PV system, and high-efficiency systems including solar shades. Passive cooling utilizes airflow currents established through strategic venting in the main living room via a dropped soffit ceiling. This acts to draw trapped heated air out from behind the shade.
