Abalone Cove – Big Sur, CA


We were asked to design a family residence that allows maximum enjoyment of spectacular Big Sur coastline views, and accommodate a young and growing family. The owners have a deep respect for this particular part of California, and wanted a strong sense of place reflected in their home.

They were drawn to heavy houses, stone houses, and a love of the English Cotswold style; but wanted a design that would also fit in this region of California. One finds the home’s entrance by traveling through a series of gardens. The house, and view, reveal themselves as you move through the residence, with a relaxed living style, emphasizing comfort and ease.
