Stinson Beach House is a contemporary residence designed by Berkeley-based studio WA Design and located in Stinson beach, California, USA. The site is connected to the ocean to the west and neighbored by another home to the east. In developing this project, the architects did not lack challenges: “We were strictly limited by both budget and zoning regulations to a home of 1400 square feet. Space was at a premium. By developing the house plan around a great room, we were able to create an inviting and large environment for all the activities of extended family and friends. The bedrooms were downscaled to fit a bed and little more. The massing that emerged in the design process was an elevated south-sloping roofline with extensive clerestory windows that accessed the views to the ridges above. Corrugated Galvalume metal, paired with cement board siding, created a sturdy and economical exterior shell for the house“. Sustainable features of this residence include open-cell foam insulation, concrete floors, natural ventilation, and recycled materials.
