Coastlands House exterior design Sustainable Home for Retired Couple in Big Sur, California: Coastlands House

The imposing Coastlands House was especially developed by Carver + Schicketanz for a retired couple in Big Sur, California, USA. The majestic oaks located on the site dominate the neighboring landscape and direct the views towards the Pacific coast to the West. According to the architects, “a massive stone base connects the structure to the uphill slope, contrasting with the lighter steel and glass elements of the home. The large glass stacking sliders open to the patios beyond – providing great cross ventilation and a seamless connection to the outdoors“.

Sustainability was a major factor to consider when building the project: “Most of the finish materials are reclaimed and the 4.4kW photovoltaic system was designed to generate 90% of the home’s power usage. A warm but neutral color palette was chosen to complement the natural building materials and juxtapose the brilliant blues of the ocean and sky and the vivid greens of the garden and hills beyond.” The interiors are imposing and bright, enriched by the owner’s world class art collection and a few special antique artifacts.
