A single story residence hidden away on a 10 acre parcel in the Sierra Foothills. The design is composed of 5 pavilions (living, cooking, sleeping, work and play). The pavilion concept was a collaborative design direction based on the clients love of Hawaiian architecture and a desire to not impact the native heritage oak habitat. The pavilions organize around a beautiful and ancient oak at the heart of an open meadow. This tree is the center focus upon entry and is the main focus in the landscape design. The house is characterized by large roof overhangs that protect the many outdoor spaces for cooking, dining, relaxing and morning coffee. Natural stone, wood, rusted steel and neutral colors help the residence blend in to the natural surroundings.
