Rancho Nuevo

To amplify the initial impression of
the home, Bianchi introduced a sensuous, feminine form by using a of low (but ascending) 30-inch-thick walls. The resulting visual tension and interplay energizes the entry experience as the curving walls juxtapose with the distinctly masculine, ascending planes of the home's facade.

Visitors are greeted by the embrace of these walls and led along a path past a trio of rusted steel corten panels that lend a lyrical quality to the pathway with their alternating folds, sequential spacing and ascending heights- echoing botht he pitch and material of the roofline beyond. As the path narrows in the curvature of these walls, there's a sense of compression followed by expansion as the path turns and opens up again as it nears a rusted steep pivot gate, offering access to the forecourt leading to the front door. The notes of this song continue in the shadowy recesses of the cantilevered stair tread detail, and with the striking interjection of tree forms that cast twisting shadows on the imperfectly smooth stucco facing the planar backdrop.
