The landscape for this new modern home high on a hill overlooking the Napa Valley, was designed to re-establish a denuded site and implement a clean yet intriguing sense of place. Minimalism mixed with regionalism tie the modern home to the site. The entry courtyard, with its walk-across water feature and large staggered concrete pads, provides a welcoming sequence for residents and guests alike. A steel fountain with frosted glass-panel backdrop beckons and directs people to the front door. In the backyard the infinity edge pool and terrace with fire pit take advantage of world class views over the Napa Valley.
