Preserving a magnificent 100-year-old Valley Oak, the building shifts and weaves beneath the tree's canopy, framing a central courtyard so it can easily be seen from any area of the home. Architect Jonathan Feldman, of Feldman Architecture, focuses on a minimalistic design style complete with custom Poggenpohl kitchens designed by I-Ching Ueng of Poggenpohl San Francisco.
"Poggenpohl was a natural choice for the Ranch O/H kitchen due to the brand's attention to quality construction and clean lines," states Jonathan Feldman, founding partner of Feldman Architecture and director of design. "A stunning range of finishes from crisp white surfaces, to rich grain veneers gave us an extensive palette to work with, while modern details paired with hardware and fittings offered the sough after counterpoint to this traditional ranch home."
"We made use of every square inch which is why Poggenpohl was such a perfect fit with our integrated storage solutions," said I-Ching Ueng, Senior Designer and Studio Manager of Poggenpohl San Francisco. "While it's very minimal and clean, the selection of finishes and layout gives Ranch O|H a lot of warmth. It feels cozy inside for such a modern home." Ueng utilized a teak lava textured veneer finish on the back of the island to ground the lacquer Blossom white cabinet finish and provide warmth to balance the space and connect with the tree visible just outside.
Ranch O/H covers 4,063 square feet and is located on a ridge above the fog in the Santa Lucia Preserve of Carmel, California.
