The Dani Ridge house, located in Big Sur California is a project by Carver + Schicketanz. In order to conceal this home from its uphill neighbors a shelf was cut into the narrow slice of grassland located between an access road on one side and the steep slopes of the West Coast on the other. The uphill land extends as a green roof over the underground portions of the home-terminating on the gently curved roof of the living room. All utilities, including the 5000 gallon water storage tank, were placed underground in order to preserve the surrounding landscape.
This house is breathtaking. The stones and the huge windows overlooking the ocean are amazing. Definitely a great place to live ;)
Check out Carver + Schicketanz website for further details about this and other projects. See you next time.
