I’ve just begun work on a residence in Templeton, California, just outside of Paso Robles. It’s a project for two wonderful clients, and I am working with Nicole Kelly, an old friend and collaborator. The house is set on a hill with 360 degree views, and the surrounding vineyards are just feet away from the back door. The house and vineyard are new, and the site is scraped clean and ready to be made over. The clients’ dream is to have the house nestled among oaks and meadow, and to look like the functioning farm that it is, while offering luxurious views from the comforting shade of vine draped trellises and patios. Nicole and I are happy to oblige, and thrilled by the possibilities.
