Lichen House by Schwartz and Architecture

The golden shades created by the local flora of the Sonoma Valley, characterize the elements of this T-shaped residence designed by the American study Schwartz and Architecture.

Lichen House is located on the hills of the Northern California wine region. The residence is named after Ramalina lichen, a plant that hangs from the branches of ancient oaks that are in the area.

"The Lichen House concentrates its soul, its concept with the mechanisms of nature, not to blindly imitate them, but to expand our understanding and experience through architecture."

A curving driveway leads to the residence containing five bedrooms. The house, structured like a T, presents the "public" areas in its long-limbed part that goes from North to South while the "private" rooms are contained in the part that stretches from East to West.

The back of the house has a terrace with a swimming pool overlooking the panoramic valley. The large glazing leads to natural light while offering wide views of the undulating terrain. The southernmost part of the house contains an open-plan living room, dining area and kitchen. Wood in warm colors has been used for windows, floors and furniture. Removable glass walls open onto an outdoor patio shaded by a lattice canopy.
