We always have a wonderful time when we get to photograph Sea Ranch contractor, Empire Contracting, Inc’s projects. This home is no exception. Every detail of this Brody Architecture designed home is executed flawlessly. The result is a home that takes full advantage of the amazing Sea Ranch views, and is designed to reflect the Sea Ranch way of living lightly on the land. The home was designed to meet the needs of the homeowners and they are delighted with the results.
David Hilmer, of Empire Contracting, Inc. describes the project as follows:
Perched high upon the hill, in the forest above Black Point Beach, this home has some amazing views. In fact, you can see surfers catching waves at Blacks from the Kitchen window. Designed by Brodie Architecture, built by Sea Ranch contractors, Empire Contracting, Inc. this home has a great sense of its site.
This beautiful new home is tall, like the surrounding trees, and clad in cement siding, stained a rich dark brown to settle comfortably into its environment. Entry to the home is gained by descending a stepped and articulated cedar trellis, topped with a translucent roof, which gives protection from the rains, while allowing the sunlight to stream through on clear days.
Inside the home, is a rich but simple palette of finishes: bamboo, sheetrock, fir, copper, and ceramic tile. There are several site-build barn doors, constructed from the same select structural fir as the wood ceilings.
The home is heated with one centrally located gas fireplace, and the heat is distributed by a ceiling fan above.
The clients were a pleasure to work with, engaged from the beginning, and very good at making intentional selections that all work well together.
We, at Sea Ranch Images, also found the owners a pleasure to work with. We wish them much happiness in their beautiful new home.
