Surf Shack

Santa Barbara, CA

This house set near the cliffs of Santa Barbara and we were inspired by the residential precedents of Marcel Breuer and the Eames Office to create a one-story linear system that combines abstract color panels with vernacular materials in a modern frame. In contrast to the box-like building envelope we developed strong sections that both maximize interior daylight and give physical variation to the ceiling planes and room volumes.
