Sarah and her sons prepare a meal in the kitchen, which the Wessels recently upgraded with Bulthaup cabinets, counters, and sink. The stovetop is from Gaggenau and the faucet is from Dornbracht. On the far wall is one of Yoshitomo Nara’s signature eye-patch portraits.
Board-formed concrete walls create the core of the house and establish its organic feel. “There’s really no other cast-in-place concrete on the street,” says Sarah, “but you don’t even see it until you’ve made it through  the front courtyard.” There, beneath a deep overhang, the couple designed a jagged pathway cantilevered over a water feature—bringing the sounds of water inside and reflections of light into the sitting area.
In the  dining area, chairs found in an antique store join a table the Wessels made from a piece of mesquite. Overhead is Lindsey Adelman’s Branching Bubble fixture.
