This house, designed for a Danish consul and his wife,was built as a weekend getaway and a venue for informal entertaining.  Sited on a sloping lotwhich opens to spectacular downslope views over the Pacific Ocean, the house gently backs into an existing grove of redwood trees, thus providing intimacy and a “deep woods” feeling toward the rear of the house.  The design embodies a Nordic sensibility to light, material, and lifestyle, while respecting the architectural forms and rustic materiality characteristic of the famed Sea Ranch design tradition.
