House for Locavore Farmers, Geyserville, Calif.

A screen of ipe slats gives this house a crisp, contemporary profile.

The original house.

The original gable roof remains, although now as a background element.

Ipe slats wrap the balcony as decking, screen, and awning.

The new interior centers on a double-height living room one story below the entry level.

In pursuit of outdoor connection, the renovation removed substantial chunks of floor and exterior wall.
