Bluff Dale

With expansive views of rolling hills, this Wabi Sabi family retreat is rooted in art and nature.

Every detail of this ground-up new build was overseen by the studio, from the home’s exact placement on the hillside lot to the bath linens and silverware. Starting with the massive rock, culled from the property, that greets visitors as they approach the central breezeway, the modern dogtrot house is a study in embracing the surrounding landscape. Unfinished oak and hand-troweled plaster walls, unlacquered brass plumbing and hardware, raw-edge stone bathroom sinks, and honed black granite kitchen countertops celebrate the beauty of natural materials as they patina over time. Rooms are furnished with plush seating in linen and shearling, found objects, vintage pieces, and an assemblage of sculptural lighting and highly personal art, creating a feel of soulful, considered comfort
