Sebastopol Residence by Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects
The Sebastopol Residence is a marvelous contemporary home located in Sebastopol, California. It was designed by Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects, the same studio we’ve featured in the article covering their West Marin Ranch project in Marin County.
This wooden-clad home is surrounded by a stunning redwood forest blessing the interiors with a breathtaking sight on each side. To make the most of this, the design includes plenty of glazed surfaces that also let natural light through.
Designed for two graphic designers, this house bridges between two stands of redwood trees, with the northern window wall facing out to the expansive view. Decks located at either end of the house open onto paths that lead to the pool on one side and the studio/garage on the other. The southern elevation screens the interior from the driveway and road above, but allows southern light in through the clerestory windows.
As you enter, a dormer rises up over the dining area to frame the view. The main house is modest in size, only 1,700 square feet, but feels spacious due to an open floor plan. The clients’ wonderful art objects are housed in the long southern wall bookcase. The exterior is clad in cedar siding with a metal roof and the interior features a Douglas fir ceiling and decking, sheetrock walls and Ipe flooring.
