We have resurfaced the art of craftsmanship through this custom and highly detailed outdoor living space. This project has become an enjoyable, crowd favorite for the Dotto Team with its extensive alignments, woodwork, and unique style.
Nestled in the roots of wine country, this project brought about a completely new addition to the existing home with the renovation for a craftsmanship-styled patio terrace. The architectural innovation for an octagonal design and custom truss allows for a vaulted ceiling and a large flagstone patio. We incorporated stocky western red cedar pillars with tongue and groove ceiling paneling to pronounce the desired craftsman aesthetic. To take on a sophisticated approach, we blacken the steel accents throughout giving it an industrial finish that patinas over time. Sunlight exposure is balanced with lattice designed edging around the entirety of the terrace and skylights with light filtering automatic shades give the owner a more customized lighting option in addition to the surrounding sconces. Lastly, with this patio terrace functioning for year-round entertaining, we have optimized this space with electronic infrared heaters as an efficient and direct heating source and incorporated a mid-pressure misting system for those Sonoma summer days. The only thing left to wrap up this ideal Sonoma living space is a good bottle of wine and enchanting friends to enjoy the space with.
