The original main house.
The 10-Star Home is a design collaboration between Clare Cousins Architects and The Sociable Weaver. The shapely exterior blends into the surrounding landscape.
Narrow- growing beech and sweetgum trees do not obstruct views to and from the home but create scale and connection to the ground plane.
The façade received fresh paint, as well as new impact resistant windows. The two-story addition rises behind it. “Given that the two-story wing was larger than the existing structure, it was critical for the new building to appear as lightweight as possible,” says the firm. “The reading of concrete, which is an almost universal residential structural system in South Florida, would have been too heavy against the reading of the low-slung wood roof of the original house.”
The second building contains the main living spaces and accesses the pool. The view from the second floor is framed by the separated gable.
A natural, stacked-stone fin is the grounding element below the cantilevered bedroom wing.

As the design of this unique structure was oriented toward the exterior panoramic view, special attention was paid to the living spaces, such as the lounge seating with fireplace, and the diagonally adjacent kitchen.

Viewed from the street looking west, the first third of the lot was landscaped to be an extension of the adjacent land and water conservation project and to provide an undisturbed animal habitat.

The high ceilings, natural light, and custom-made wooden furniture give the house a simple, fresh, and clean feel.
With assistance from landscape designer Monica Viarengo, the outdoor space has been designed to draw the excitement of the city in toward the home.
The spaces are arranged around a courtyard to create visual and physical connections. Yet, these connected areas can be broken up by large sliding doors.
The top floor of the home is propped on three large steel supports that resembles paperclips.
Each of the buildings provides cozy, cave-like spaces with generous, sun-lit porches that look out to stunning views.

“The site was beautiful as it is,” architect Eric Tremblay said, and he wanted to build a home that had the least impact on the terrain as possible. The lake can be seen on either side of the house, and natural materials—like the Eramosa limestone coating on the exterior—were a priority during construction.
Entry
In the front courtyard, a raised bluestone patio was built off the new kitchen for casual meals and entertaining. The Eames Molded Plastic Chairs are from Herman Miller. The dining table and benches are from Room & Board.
Tasked with creating a multi-use guest pavilion on a relatively small Northern California vineyard lot that could also host sit down dinners for up to 60 people, designers at Anderson Architects started by asking the key questions:  “Where should it be within the property?”  “How much floor area do we need for a 60 person dinner?” “How much volume do we need for a basketball court?”  “We also always tell ourselves to look at the landscape first, let it dominate and lead it through. The building took the form of a large Napa Valley barn.
The entry, with a glimpse of the front garden.
The entry consists of a wide foyer which opens dramatically into a large living area. The space is flooded with natural light thanks to a wall of glass sliding doors which open onto a patio that leads to an outdoor pool with a distinctly vintage vibe.
Tall tropical planting creates privacy and shade while the lush tropical foliage softens the look of the concrete building and pavers. The lignum vitae in front of the wall creates additional privacy for the owners.
