CENTRAL COAST MODERN BARN
Situated on an expansive orchard with several hundred acres of avocado, citrus, and stone fruit trees, this ranch style residence was designed in the vernacular of a traditional central coast barn and made to look like it was subsequently converted to a loft-type residence.
The home owners demanded a residential design that would accommodate their self-sufficient lifestyle. Ultimately, this project afforded the design team an opportunity to carefully consider environmental impacts, design a healthy home, and elevate the importance of energy and water conservation, indoor air quality, and sustainable building materials throughout all project phases.
