The New Ranch House Part 2

The L.A.Times Real Estate Section had a feature on The Ranch, Refined.
Have we come a long way in building a better ranch? Oh yes we have. This Somis residence designed by architect Zoltan Pali, says the structure fundamentally is a country house responding to its setting. “Rural has always been associated with simplicity, sparseness and function,” Pali says. “That is this house. I see it as a simple architectural expression with elements boiled down to their essence.”

The countryside is ever-present in Pali’s free-flowing plan.
Here, the living area naturally leads to the open kitchen.

14 ft ceilings, clerestory windows, wide open passage ways from one room to the next are my favorite features.
