The original home on this property was destroyed during the 2008 Tea Fire. In order to meet the clients’ restricted rebuilding budget, architect Peter Becker suggested a contemporary design; its straight and simple lines make it one of the more cost effective architectural approaches. The finished product, with its beautiful strand woven bamboo floors, granite countertops and floor to ceiling picture windows providing stunning views of the Santa Barbara Channel, is more elegant than what anyone thought the budget could support.

Peter Becker Architect is an intimate, five-person office in Santa Barbara, CA, that specializes in the design of single‐family residences, large and small, new and remodeled. Since 1991, they have assembled a large body of work, mostly in Southern California, that is remarkable for its diversity, where the style of each house is more influenced by its neighborhood, its site, its history and its present owners rather than any one architect’s personal design philosophy. Their portfolio covers everything from Contemporary to Arts and Crafts to Spanish Colonial Revival, along with numerous restorations of prominent historical buildings.
