Santa Cruz Mountains Contemporary
A new contemporary vision from old foundations…
This is a new 2300 SF Residence that was designed around an older existing pier and grade beam foundation. I utilized some of the existing foundation angles to create large vaulted spaces in the Entry- Living - Kitchen Dining area. These angles played out into the exterior decks off the Entry. A roof clerestory window pops up at the end of the bedroom hallway to relight the interior spaces.
The perimeter of foundation also received seismic shear piles to help stabilize the site during larger seismic events.
