Stay: Sonoma Coast Glass House

Occidental, California
08.05.2010 | by: Meghan

Los Angeles-based furniture designer Carol Vena-Mondt is a dream client. When she teamed up with Fred Fisher of Frederick Fisher and Partners to build a 500-square-foot home on 24 acres of land in Sonoma County, she had only one directive. “My only request is for the architect to design something that will make me aware of my living space on a daily basis.” Mission accomplished. Influenced by the modernist lines of Le Corbusier and made from simple materials like wood, block and lots of glass, the house is all about the views: ridge-top, ocean, grassy meadows and woodland, sometimes all at once. She can work on her furniture—clean-lined walnut pieces (often made from a single tree)—while being inspired by the land. Hiking trails, seasonal creeks, a double waterfall and sandy beach are also part of the property.

The Details
The price is $2,800 a week; it’s a 10-minute drive to the village of Occidental; there’s radiant heat and passive solar orientation; and there’s one bedroom and one bath. Inside, Carol’s own designs mix with furniture by the modern masters: Saarinen, Eames, Wegner and McMakin. Rent it at
