Their work has received more than 200 international, national, regional, and local design awards and has been published in numerous national and international publications. Overland was recognized by Architect magazine as one of the top 50 design firms in the United States in 2015 and one of the top 50 sustainable design firms in 2016.
Their design for the Gray’s Paso Robles residence will offer O’Neal and Lynn the opportunity to more fully share their talents for enriching the lives of family, friends, and all those they encounter. The home and landscape will respond thoughtfully to the local environment and its unique character, providing a sanctuary for the soul that blurs the line between the indoor and outdoor.
Meeting the same sustainability standards as MoonSprings® Vineyard, the Gray’s home will respect the land it inhabits. Materials and composition are inspired from – and intrinsic to – the topography, its context, and location. The design calls upon knowledge of native ecology, climate, sun, and wind to create spaces and structures that are hospitable and self-sustaining. Construction and landscape are designed for environmental sensitivity and low maintenance.
The interior design will be brought to life by Paul Draper & Associates of Dallas, Texas.

His professional specialties include: hydrologic evaluation, groundwater basin analysis, water well siting and construction supervision, geologic hazards assessment, seismic and and fault investigations, environmental planning, and erosion and drainage control mitigation.
As plans for MoonSprings® Vineyard emerged, the Grays knew there was no better qualified firm to carry out their vision than a local team just minutes away.
They were right.
