Goto House sits at the edge of a meadow on a 95 acre off-grid Napa County parcel overlooking Lake Berryessa. The house’s hexagonal form capitalizes on spectacular views in all directions of the surrounding landscape. The house’s program is organized as four rectangular blocks — Living, Master Bedroom, Kids, and Yoga/Guest — that are configured around the house’s central Rhombus shaped courtyard. Four covered decks between the program blocks create a strong connection to the landscape and an outward pull toward the lake and surrounding mountains, which plays against an inward spatial pull toward the courtyard and its connection to the sky As such the house is designed to take advantage of California’s indoor-outdoor living.
