Located in the hills of Montecito, California, this small residence presented the designers with the challenge of achieving a bold program with a modest budget. Collaborating with the client, the designers developed a unique residential character and focused on orienting design around the property’s surrounding environment, framing views of the Santa Ynez mountains through expansive glass openings on the North façade.
The remodel maintained the home’s existing footprint and structure, but ANACAPA completely reimagined the interior floor plan, focusing on creating gathering spaces in the central kitchen and living areas. The material palette was redeveloped to highlight natural tones and textures of the surrounding natural environment.
