Modern Architecture should always push the envelope in design and sustainability and live up to the word “Modern” and that’s exactly what took place with this home. Berry Berkus AIA has been designing beautiful cutting edge modern homes since the 50’s, combined that with the detailed execution of Young Construction, Santa Barbara based contractors for the last 30 years and you arrive at a flawless piece of art poised perfectly on one of California’s most treasured and exclusive beaches.
This beachfront Padaro Lane home is a magnificent 7,800 square feet, with oceans of dual glazed low e glass exposing down the coast view from every turn. The use of durable and recycled materials, attention to thermal massing, positioning and level of glass this modern home surpasses California’s Title 24 requirements by 50 percent. It’s a house that is transparent where it does the most good and private where privacy is important.
Designed as a multigenerational retreat and entertaining haven this magnificent addition to the collection of Modern Architecture in the Santa Barbara area and deservingly so was honored with the 2010 Gold Nugget Grand Award
