    Hupomone Ranch is an original 160-acre homestead located in the Chileno Valley, just three miles west of downtown Petaluma. The ranch had been fallow for over 30 years and the owners, a young family with three children, wanted to build a barn house that would reflect their commitment to sustainable farming, draw on the natural serenity of the site and build on the sense of place in western Petaluma where farming and ranching are still a part of people’s daily lives.

    The site has a wonderful balanced quality to it, and the simple grounded form of the barn is sited to compliment this setting and capture the long views to the coastal range beyond. Set into the more opaque north side, the entry provides shelter tucked under the loft above and frames a view through the house to the meadow beyond. The light-filled living area opens up to the long view south and gathers the bedrooms and kitchen to either side. The kitchen has slide away windows that open directly to the garden.

    The house is certified LEED Platinum and features a number of energy saving features exceeding title 24 by over 50 percent. Passive heating and cooling with thermal mass and insulation, Geothermal, radiant cooling and heating along with solar and photovoltaic panels contribute to the house’s energy efficiency.

We are a woman-owned business renowned for sustainable, site sensitive design of houses as well as wineries, churches, libraries and independent schools. Our work also includes campus planning, adaptive reuse, historic renovations, and interiors. We believe architecture is primarily concerned with establishing a "sense of place," inspired by the uniqueness of each site and each client. Since the concept for each of our buildings is rooted in its environment, we are particularly attentive to topography, microclimate, vegetation and solar orientation. We listen carefully to the aspirations and requirements of our clients. Mary Griffin, Eric Haesloop and Stefan Hastrup collaborate on all aspects of design and continue William Turnbull’s commitment to producing buildings of enduring architectural value. Turnbull Griffin Haesloop is dedicated to green building principles, with several LEED accredited professionals.
