Big Sur

Big Sur, California, USA

A port cohere separates the main house from the guest house, a soaring single plane roof rises to the living room and dining area, supported on a timber structure of bolted posts and beams like a Donald Judd sculpture. The rainwater is channelled to a single large water butt to service a conservatory.

The plan shaped like a boomerang to command views of the ocean to the north and a garden forecourt protected from the wind on the south.
