Two modest volumes, benched gently into the hillside, open to a floating glass bar just as the ground drops away. This perch at the edge of a pine forest allows for a layered sequence of heightened sensorial experience, moving from grounded enclosure to revelation and suspension over the valley floor.

The design appropriates outdoor space, using screened openings, operable glass walls, and generously shaded decks to create a gradual transition from the wild natural landscape to a materially warm interior. Spaces are arranged to enable the convivial spirit of a wine country gathering, while providing moments of solitude akin to being in a tree house.
