What if a home could be built to be environmentally resilient, wildfire resistant, and yet comfortable and open to the extraordinary ocean view site?
This residence designed by ShubinDonaldson on a 10-acre site is approached via a narrow, tree covered drive, ending at a small clearing with views of the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands. The residence is sited on axis with the canyon and views beyond. The building presents three one story, wedge shaped volumes; a carport /service volume to the north, a public living volume to the south west and a private sleeping volume to the south east.
