This gorgeous home, located in a nature preserve in Monterey County, embraces a single core concept that its owners emphasized during its design phase: lightness, like “a butterfly landing in a meadow.”
Sitting lightly on the land, the house is divided into three pavilions that are topped by expressive butterfly roofs. Each pavilion has a separate function: the central pavilion houses the main living, dining, and cooking spaces, while two other pavilions provide for sleeping, bathing, and relaxing. The structures are modest in size, yet each expands into an outdoor room that opens up to dramatic views of the canyon below and hills above. The neutral palette of the house—concrete floors and walls, large glass openings, plywood ceilings, and steel structure—flows from indoors to outdoors.
The home had to look like it could lift off from the ground with a twitch of its winged roof. Our Series 5000 windows help transform that lovely idea into a stunning reality.
