Indoor/outdoor rooms wrap around an internal garden with a swimming pool or other water feature in Audubon Hollow.

The upper-level terrace has a vaulted ceiling and optional fireplace in Audubon Hollow. 

In this outdoor kitchen from Specht Harpman, horizontal ipe panels wrap the kitchen core’s cabinetry and appliances, and a mirror strip at the top lends a sense of floating in the space. Throughout the property, bands of river rock mark transitions and facilitate drainage. 

The cabana is open from front to back, allowing visitors and caterers to circulate through the space.

The metal overhead grid shades the kitchen and edges of the east/west-oriented pavilion, its slats angled to block direct sun during the day. Sonoma, Calif. 

The full kitchen makes meal prep a breeze, and a fireplace with a built-in rotisserie warms chilly nights. Sonoma, Calif. 

The Hover House experiments with uniting the front and rear yards on a small urban lot.

Pushing the house to the long side of the lot allows the outdoor spaces to flow.
