Carmel TBD

Project

Project Details

The original home, newly purchased by the clients, was in an ideal location: on the aptly-named Scenic Drive in Carmel, overlooking the ocean.

But from the second floor, that view was completely obstructed by two large conical roof structures above the living and dining room. The studio approached the project with holistic broad strokes; the old roof was replaced with a green roof and garden roof terrace. Eliminating the obstruction entirely, the redesign instead frames the seascape with a more natural prospect, and a step out onto the roof brings you to an outdoor retreat dusted in the California sunshine and the ocean breeze.
