Modern Residence in California Opened Towards a Dramatic Landscape

Carpinteria Foothills Residence is a contemporary hillside residence designed by Neumann Mendro Andrulaitis Architects and located in  California, USA. Overlooking a coastal ridge-top landscape, the home opens up towards it, through generously-sized glazed windows. According to the architects, “the program asked for a master suite, one guest room, a study for two, a more contained den and an informal open living space they could share with their children and grand children. The site strategy was to separate the guesthouse, pool and pool house from the main house, by locating them amongst the oaks on a lower terrace. The smaller structures were easier to place around the mature oak trees without disturbing their root systems. Each structure has its own orientation and privacy.” The interior design is highly modern and each room comes with stunning views. A courtyard invites the inhabitants to enjoy outdoor activities and front row seats to nature’s spectacles.
