Following the geometric shapes that are ever so popular in modern design, this house has very angular and straight-cut lines running all the way through its design. The house is situated on the top of a hill, on a plot over looking Healdsburg, California and is sat in the midst of a scattering of mixed woodlands. Developed by American situated company, Swatt | Miers Architects, this house has been designed for a young family with two children and consists of two parallel wings that help connect the social and personal spaces of the house. The exterior has been crafted using wooden slats and concrete, with the addition of metal for railings and window frames. As you walk inside, the interior looks open, clean and contemporary and has been finished off with tiny amounts of colour for added interest. Photos by Russell Abraham Photography.
