Live Modern: Summerhill Residence
Architecture & Interiors
Live Modern? More like Dream Modern. This house is huge and magical. These are the two words that first came to mind when we looked at it. By it, we mean more like a compound than an actual single-structure home, considering this residence by Edmonds + Lee Architects in Kenwood, California, is actually three separate buildings that come together to create someone’s home. We’re enamored with the exterior treatment, with the interior treatment, how the buildings interact with one another, and how they interact with the surrounding nature.
“Set within a rural parcel in the heart of Northern California Wine Country, the Summerhill Residence consists of 3 separate buildings (main house, guest house and detached garage) that are situated to maximize the connection between the natural and the man-made. The distinction between the indoors and the outdoors is intentionally blurred as interior and exterior spaces extend in all directions to the gently rolling hills of the Sonoma landscape beyond.”
What do you think about the look of these three buildings? What do you think about three structures coming together to create one home…do you think they’re successful here?
