California-based design studio Carver + Schicketanz has designed the Dani Ridge House project. The stunning property can be found in Big Sur California.
According to the architects: “In order to conceal this contemporary Californian home from its uphill neighbours 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.”
The contemporary Californian property comes with fabulous views of the Pacific Ocean – imagine waking up with that view every morning.
