Mountainside Home

Mountainside Home is the third phase of a Montecito Tea Fire rebuild project. The 3800SF main residence completes a 3-acre site master plan developed by Blackbird in 2009. The home, and previously realized guest house and music studio, inhabit chaparral slopes with stunning ocean and channel island views. Site responsive design affords views from every space. Merging building and landscape, a vegetated roof covers the partially bermed lower level. Rustic heavy timber structure and board-formed concrete walls complement a warm palette of charcoal-colored plaster, wood floors, and elegant interior detail.
