Designed by architects Shubin + Donaldson, this innovative, award winning designed home was completed in 2012 and is approximately 2,528 sq. ft. of modern convenience and efficiency. The home is in excellent move-in condition with beautifully integrated architecture, clean lines, open layouts and abundant natural light. The home offers 4-bedrooms and 3-baths, a living room with a custom steel fireplace surround, a top-of-the-line gourmet kitchen, a library/office, and a private all-glass master bedroom wing with automated exterior blinds. Some of the new sustainable energy features include exterior shades and privacy screens, energy efficient lighting controls, all new high-efficiency plumbing, a Control 4 home automation system, and a whole house sound system. The approx. 10,000 sq. ft. lot features new low water landscaping with automated irrigation, an outdoor dining courtyard, hardwood decks, a lap pool with an Aqualink APP pool control on the iPhone, a spa, an outdoor shower off the master, and a two-car garage. This dynamic, cutting-edge home is designed to be a demonstration of the possibilities inherent in a modern Santa Barbara indoor/outdoor lifestyle.
The 14 ft. x 34 ft. CL20 is a prototype modern residential addition to a suburban ranch house that minimally connects to the existing house through a transparent glass box, optimizing interior day lighting. The kit of parts includes many “off-the-shelf” components and sustainable energy features such as exterior shades and privacy screens to reduce solar gain on the west wall. A flat roof provides a platform for a photovoltaic array to service the new addition as well as the existing residence. The design deploys pre-engineered, pre-fabricated structural steel moment frames that bolt to a standard concrete slab. The steel moment frame supports the flat roof, thus providing all the vertical and lateral support necessary for the entire structure, eliminating exterior shear walls and allowing for floor plan flexibility.
