Monte Sereno, CA

Private Residence, Monte Sereno, CA
A home for relaxation and enjoyment of the warm California climate, this Monte Sereno estate incorporates large openings to take advantage of valley views. Indoor/outdoor spaces are created by retractable doors, and maximize living space.

The roof forms, large covered porches and overhangs recall a tropical locale. The home incorporates many "green" building features. Solar panels integrate with the standing seam metal roof to supplement heating and radiant floors. Passive ventilation is a natural component to reduce energy use. Solar heat gain from patios is used to heat the infinity edge pool. The pool is flanked on the sides by the guest house and pool house creating a unique setting.
