Coastlands House

Studio Schicketanz as Architects

This site incorporated a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean and Big Sur Coastlands; but was dominated by an existing home and other buildings that were substandard in construction. The residence needed to be replaced with a new, more energy efficient home that could be seamlessly integrated into its world-class natural surroundings.

 

Our clients’ vision included a home that would maximize the views, while providing tranquility and serenity. By building a detached guest house, we were able to provide room to accommodate overnight guests while maintaining privacy for the homeowners. The spa area with integrated workout facilities provides a retreat for yoga and meditation.

 

The design solution included integration of the new structures into native landscape while regaining open space, and incorporating sustainable elements into all aspects of the design. We used a warm, neutral color palette to complement the natural building materials and juxtapose the brilliant blues and greens of the landscape. Most of the carpets and many furnishings were designed by the architect.

 

The large glass stacking sliders open to the patios beyond - providing great cross ventilation and a seamless connection to the outdoors. Most of the finish materials are reclaimed and the 4.4kW photovoltaic system generates 90% of the home’s power usage. A continuous ventilation system, low VOC paints and finishes as well as all natural fabrics assure non toxic interiors which contribute to the well being of our clients.
