Mann House Design by Fernau and Hartman Architct

Mann House, Design by Fernau and Hartman Architct. On a ridge in Sonoma County, the Mann House commands a 360-degree view of surrounding vineyards and mountains beyond. It is a primary residence for a family of three. The main house is a series of interconnecting spaces each borrowing from the other, allowing it to be relatively modest, yet retain privacy. For the work-at-home couple—he is a writer, she is an artist—this is important.To the L-shaped plan of the house, we added an outbuilding to define the courtyard space. This building, which splits in to become a studio and guest-room, makes a second L-shaped piece. The two interlocking “L’s” creates a series of varied outdoor areas that crop and edit adjacent views.

Dow House, by Fernau and Hartman Architct

July 09, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Home Design

Dow House, designed by Fernau and Hartman Architct. Located on a southwestern slope with specimen oaks and views to California’s coastal range, this primary residence is designed to adapt to the changing needs of a growing family and to engage its owners in a dialogue between traditional and modern formal and material strategies. Sited just below a ridge, the house is organized under a large shed roof that wraps the slope and shapes an entry court. It is punctuated by various dormers for light, views, and headroom. The fluid plan and open trusses shape a great room that encompasses the central activities of family life. Two major wings interrupt this dominant shed: the children’s wing—a gabled roof and traditional detailing, and the parents’ retreat—a two-story modernist shed.
