Long, low lines characterize the architecture of this modern California home, nestled into a hilltop in Sonoma County wine country. An al fresco dining space is sheltered from the sun by a sleek patio roof, meanwhile enjoying stunning views. The dining area, as well as a pair of modern chaise longues, overlook a contemporary swimming pool.
Concrete and gravel paths combine with concrete seat walls that edge the back of a main courtyard space in Sonoma County, Calif. The design by Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects was an American Society of Landscape Architects award-winning project.
Garage-style doors retract to expose this rustic-modern dining space to the stunning, sweeping views of California's Sonoma County wine region. A simple wood table and chairs keep the space minimal and modern. Wood and metal details are sparse and neutral, allowing the outdoor view to steal the show.
