An achievement of true sustainability by way of rammed earth construction, reclaimed and salvaged materials, low energy usage and passive solar design.
The founder of Clif Bar and his wife created a compound for farming, horses, wine growing and and all-around chilling. The home's decor was inspired by the idea that your passions: travel, food, gathering, and respect for the earth should fuel the home you build from the ground up. This drove the selection of textiles, soft goods, reclaimed and salvaged items and the use of respected vendors such as Cisco Brothers, Lee Industries and many custom items. Fabrics from travels were made into pillows, art is signage from a meaningful street and a color palette was earthy and "Tuscan" derived.
