Inspired by the property’s tranquil rural setting, the Jennings’s original building was a very straightforward but elegant rectangular house built by simple industrial materials—corrugated steel walls and steel decking— rendered it with clean, simple lines, balance, and symmetry, and blends with its natural landscape, neighboring vineyards and farms.
