The Opdahl House, designed by Edward Killingsworth for Richard and Joyce Opdahl, is located on the island of Naples, in Long Beach, California, and the design responds to the constraints imposed by the compact site.Unlike the neighbors, whose  homes unflinchingly abut their property lines, Killingsworth set the Opdahl House 42 feet back from the street, dedicating half of the lot to a dramatic entryway that includes a carport, garden, and reflecting pool.

Located in Rutherford, California, Quintessa Winery has a longstanding commitment to creating modern architecture that complements rather than competes with the landscape. When the Huneeus family sought to add three pavilions for private wine tastings to the estate, they wanted the structures to offer protection from the sun, wind, and heat without imposing on the land or coming between the visitor and the vineyard. Greg Warner, Principal/Owner, LEED AP, and Michael McCabe, Associate Principal,  LEED AP, from Walker Warner Architects worked on the project. "Our response was a series of three 250-square-foot open air roofed structures, set amid the oak forest on a ridge-line overlooking the rolling vineyard-covered hills and the lake beyond," they say. "The clean, modern lines and visual simplicity of the pavilions serve as a backdrop to the tasting experience and as a frame to the landscape beyond while also sheltering visitors from the elements." Lutkso Associates served as the landscape architects for the pavilions.

Modern Atrium House

The owners, inspired by mid-century modern architecture, hired Klopf Architecture to design an Eichler-inspired 21st-Century, energy efficient new home that would replace a dilapidated 1940s home. The home follows the gentle slope of the hillside while the overarching post-and-beam roof above provides an unchanging datum line. The changing moods of nature animate the house because of views through large glass walls at nearly every vantage point. Every square foot of the house remains close to the ground creating and adding to the sense of connection with nature.
