MOUNTAIN HOUSE

This soaring architectural achievement is a graceful play of steel, glass, and concrete. Perched on an iconic Santa Barbara mountainside with sweeping ocean views, the Mountain House is a delightful balance of gravity and light, and bold lines melting into the landscape. Following the curve of the mountainside, the steel exterior of this house folds around a protected courtyard that overlooks an infinity pool towards the valley and ocean.

The exacting nature of this site and the building materials for this unique custom home demanded precision and expertise in both the engineering and construction process. From the way steel baseboards round a corner, to the care with which form boards were chosen for concrete openings, to the way glass openings frame a view, every detail of this spectacular home was thoughtfully and masterfully executed. It is at once strikingly bold and innovative, yet timeless and seamlessly dovetailed into its setting.
