Retrospect Vineyard Residence

Windsor, California

Located on a gently sloping knoll surrounded by 20 acres of pinot noir vineyards, this new Somona County Home has been designed to provide casual indoor-outdoor living spaces that take full advantage of the magnificent wine-country site. In plan, the house is an elongated 'T', creating a relatively opaque and private entry courtyard on the north side. In contrast, the south side of the house is all glass, including large sliding glass doors that open the interior spaces to an expansive swimming pool terrace overlooking the vineyards below. A deep, floating roof spans over the main house and glass guest house creating a sun-protected outdoor kitchen and dining terrace with dramatic pool and vineyard views on two sides.
