Perched on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the Sea Ranch Retreat is a modern interpretation of the Sonoma County community homes from the 1960s. The cedar-clad getaway is comprised of two wings angled at the water. Connected by a corrugated steel walkway, one unit is reserved for the bedrooms while the other is comprised of the living spaces. Each one features a minimalist aesthetic with plywood lined walls and concrete floors. Generous amounts of glazing warm the interior with the coastal sun and highlight views of the California landscape. The site's towering mature trees were preserved to protect the outdoor patios from the noisy highway, allowing for a peaceful area to enjoy glimpses of both the forest and the sea.
