Seaside single household residence located in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, designed by Studio Schicketanz.
Description by Studio Schicketanz
The chosen website was steep and oriented east/west in the direction of different improvement. So as to benefit from the view to the north and the photo voltaic publicity to the south we terraced the location and created a base for a cantilevered dwelling area which is now takes benefit of the spectacular view of the Bay and Level Lobos to the north. By recessing greater than half of the created sq. footage into the hillside we additionally created flat, usable yard area. The remaining roofs are all planted to mitigate the visible impression of the construction for all who look down on it from above.
