Preserve 1 – Santa Lucia Preserve, CA


The Santa Lucia Preserve is a 20,000 acre ranch master planned to accommodate just under 300 residences. This particular homesite sits at the bottom of a hill as it meets the meadow adjoining the golf course.

The design for this residence for a London-based couple derives loosely from classic California ranch houses, using the lanky, low-slung building forms to merge sensitively into the landscape. The house is conceived of multiple wings assembled as a compound around a central living space, and sits at the exact point where hills meet meadowland and fields of native grassland.
