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.
