Montecito Residence by Barton Myers Associates

Barton Myers Associates have completed the Montecito Residence in California. This stunning modern dwelling is designed to take advantage of the pristine site that it sits on. The home is surrounded with breathtaking views of the nature that surrounds it, so naturally, it features a rather open layout.

Located in the hills above Montecito, the Ladera Residence’s was designed to take advantage of the site’s striking features, including majestic oak trees and large boulders. The residence is divided into two wings. A public wing includes living, dining and kitchen areas and opens up to the main outdoor dining and lounging areas. The second, more intimate wing, contains bedrooms, bathrooms and a library all of which open up to small outdoor courtyards and terraces. The property also includes a lap-pool and an existing guest house.

The building is constructed of exposed steel, glass, concrete and insulated metal panels. The Montecito Residence takes full advantage of the indoor-outdoor living made possible by California Coast’s mild climate. Designed specifically without air-conditioning, the house is cooled exclusively by cross-ventilation. Large operable sectional glass doors, sliding doors and windows can be opened and closed to quickly adjust to the climate conditions and the occupants’ comfort. In addition, the house’s radiant heat system is fed by solar collector panels. Other sustainable features include highly efficient boilers, photovoltaic panels and an Energy-Star rated “cool” roof.
