62 West North Street, Healdsburg CA 95448

Project Location: Healdsburg, CA
Owner: Geri & Andrew Biehl
Completion Date: 03/01/2012

Long Description:

Located on Fitch Mountain with expansive views of the Alexander Valley, this single family residence is composed of four iconic metal-roofed gabled wings that are connected by an open breezeway and transparent entry and passage zones fabricated from a steel window and door system.

Three wings of the house and a pool define an outdoor courtyard that is planted with a high canopied orchard to provide shade during the hot summer months. A minimal trellis of cedar and steel also shades the southern exposure of the courtyard and alludes to the project’s modernist leanings.

The free plan kitchen, dining, and living area is contrasted spatially by the more cellular make up of the two  bedroom wings, while the courtyard and a restrained palette of materials provide a sense of stasis for the composition.

Passive and active solar strategies, the use of salvaged wood and sustainable products such as composite siding, metal roofing and clad windows and doors combine to create a maintenance free exterior and an environmentally responsible building.
