This is one of my favorite small house designs that unfortunately was never realized. It is a freestanding master suite for a couple and their visiting grandkids on their Sonoma, California land. The footprint is very compact in order to minimize impact on the site. It is situated adjacent to the existing swimming pool and so becomes somewhat of the pool house, with a generous covered porch to enjoy a poolside view on hot summer days.
It’s form is thin and tall, with an ascending promenade into, up and through the house that culminates at the roof deck which serves as an aerial perch for watching birds and taking in the stunning Sonoma Valley landscape.
