Luxurious Carpinteria Foothills Residence, USA
Neumann Mendro Andrulaitis Architects based in Carpinteria have designed the luxurious Carpinteria Foothills Residence. The stunning single-storey home was completed in 2010 and can be found in the small seaside city of Carpinteria, in southeastern Santa Barbara County, California, USA.
According to the architects the: “Contemporary residence is designed to seamlessly open unto the panoramic coastal ridge-top site via expansive operable glazed walls. The glazed transparency is balanced and the home is anchored in place by substantial cut native sandstone walls. The architectural design evolved from our client’s desire for a home that is a tranquil place for living, art and retreat.”
The gorgeous property includes a master suite, one guest room, a study for two, a more contained den and an informal open living space. The design firm planned to separate the guesthouse, pool and pool house from the main house, by locating them amongst the oaks on a lower terrace. The smaller structures were placed around the mature oak trees so not to disturb their root systems. Each structure has its own orientation and privacy. Images courtesy of Ciro Coelho.
