A retired couple in Big Sur, California wanted a one-of-a-kind property, a coastlands home to settle into.
Carver + Schicketanz delivered in a big way.
The impressive luxury home is comprised of thousands of stones at the house’s base and exterior. The large glass stacking sliders open to the patios beyond – providing great cross ventilation and a seamless connection to the outdoors. Most of the finish materials are reclaimed and the 4.4kW photovoltaic system was designed to generate 90% of the home’s power usage.
The owner’s world class art collection and a few choice antiques such as the Ico Parisi dining table lend this space substance, and go well with the carefully sourced furnishings. Most of the carpets and many furnishings were specifically designed by the architects for this residence.
