World renowned architect Christopher Alexander has designed homes around this concept. He found that a house empowers the people who live in them, and just such a home exists in Sonoma County.
"The structure of life I have described in buildings – the structure which I believe to be objective – is deeply and inextricable connected with the human person, and with the innermost nature of human feeling." -Christopher Alexander
Alexander has designed houses in Japan, Mexico and California, such as this one in Sebastopol. Sonoma county real estate agents Heidi Faulkner and Randy Mack would be more than happy to show you this artisan made estate.
