Located in a nature preserve in the Santa Lucia Mountains, the site of oak forests and steep meadows strongly impacted and inspired Feldman Architecture’s design for House Ocho. In order to reduce the impact of the home’s massing and to preserve site lines, the building settles into the ground and overhanging roofs are planted with tall native grasses. The house is also divided up into a series of pavilions to lessen its overall mass.

As they are drawn into the widening view, they are led down from the tree-lined ridge to a large terrace that serves as an outdoor living room for the house. Nearly every room has wide doors that open to the land allowing the modest home to feel much more spacious.

When only the owners are home, the guest wing can be shut off, electrically and thermally. External hallways further reduce the amount of thermally controlled space.

To further tie the house to the land, a natural palette of wood and concrete with weathered steel accents is incorporated throughout the house. In addition to allowing the house to blend into the landscape, the green roofs allow rain water to be absorbed on-site and ensure that the house remains cool in hot summer months. A passive solar design strategy was implemented as well: large windows expose the concrete floors and retaining walls to the morning sun, thus minimizing the need for artificial heat.

Environmentally sensitive building materials such as sustainably harvested lumber and insulation made from denim manufacturing waste were specified throughout the home. Finally, the large meadows adjacent to the house have been replanted with native grasses and wildflowers which are drought-tolerant and also provide fire resistance.Save this picture!© Paul DyerProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Harpa Concert Hall / Henning Larsen Architects and Olafur EliassonArticlesBloom / DO|SU Studio ArchitectureArticles Share 2004 Save this picture!© Kodiak Greenwood+ 14 Share Year:  CopyAbout this officeFeldman ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHousesCarmel-by-the-Sea3D ModelingUnited StatesPublished on March 12, 2012Cite: “House Ocho / Feldman Architecture” 12 Mar 2012.
