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.

This 3,200 square foot Culver City Contemporary home features 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. The residential design exemplifies sophisticated contemporary architecture in its simple expression of form, efficient use of space, and elegant interior. Vital to the design of the residence, its exterior respects and takes advantage of both the neighborhood itself and the home’s position within the neighborhood – a corner lot.
Andmore Partner’s design breaks down this residence into to human scale through the use of texture and minimal color palette. The white stucco form is accentuated with two juxtaposing black masses. The two extruded mass visually connects both street fronting facade, and two levels of the house, drawing the eye from one black mass to another, forming mental imagery of an interlocked massing. The exterior’s mid height site wall and low level landscaping creates an openness while maintaining privacy and intimacy in this friendly pedestrian oriented neighborhood.
Layered landscaping is employed in lieu of the traditional manicured lawn, creating an inviting entryway into the residence. A mid-height concrete wall cascades down to Corten steel planter boxes, hosting a variety of low water consumption plants. Behind the board-formed concrete wall peeks taller trees and bushes forming layers upon layers soft and hardscape with varying colors and textures. The landscape keeps the mild color palette and still addresses both climate and budget concerns.
Every room in this residence has All Weather windows on two different sides for natural ventilation. Each All Weather window or door is designed to reflect the layout and function of each room as well as nourish the relationship with its surrounding. Large All Weather picture windows offer famed vistas of the neighborhood and beyond while also providing the exterior an elegant appearance. The All Weather Series 7000 swing door in combination with Series 5000 fixed and casement windows open to the second floor balcony, allowing natural light into the master bedroom.
The interior of this contemporary residence is simple but warm, using a combination of wood, marble, quartz, and steel. The calm, natural color palette creates a harmonious backdrop and re-imagines a living space by replacing a separated designated living area with one unified entity. The living, kitchen, and dining rooms connect as one continuous space with All Weather Series 9100 bifold doors integrating with the backyard to maximize the living area. The open stair acts as a medium to expand the first-floor living area onto the second floor. Indirect southern light illuminates the space to keep it open and warm, without being blindingly bright or too hot – perfect for the southern California climate.
