Fire Country Lookout

Perched atop a hill near Healdsburg, CA, the Fire Country Lookout stands as a beacon of sustainable living in the post-climate-change era. This multi-generational retreat, designed by Studio Vara, boasts a sleek, prismatic form that maximizes views of Mount St. Helena and the surrounding landscape. Wrapped in standing-seam metal, it shields against wildfires and extreme weather.

Designed for off-grid living, the home features rooftop solar panels, Tesla Powerwall batteries, and a backup generator. Inside, a thoughtfully planned layout includes open living spaces and private bedrooms, seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor living. Scalloped Corten retaining walls and native landscaping integrate the structure into its natural surroundings.
