Architect Visit: Anderson Anderson Architects in Sonoma

March 28, 2011

Situated on the grounds of a mature apple orchard in Sebastopol, this low-slung prefab cast-concrete house (first admired in Dwell) by San Francisco-based architects Anderson Anderson features a “single-story volume, wheelchair accessible throughout, built with a minimal range of materials: heated concrete slabs, raw concrete supporting walls, with secondary walls and ceiling clad in white drywall on the interior, and minimal cabinetry and millwork manufactured of raw Douglas Fir plywood. Windows are fabricated, galvanized steel. The flat roof of the house is low, and kept well below the top limbs of the orchard.”

To read more about the project, go to Dwell; to see more of the firm’s work, go to Anderson Anderson.
