Carmel Valley Residence (2013) by Sagan Piechota Architecture, located in Carmel Valley, CA. USA The 5,100 ft² (473 m²) home was built with the intention for this modern 2-story family home centered on achieving an intimate connection between the ‘L’ shaped residence and its setting within a rolling hillside clearing
Entrance to the home is achieved beneath an enclosed 2nd-story bridge that connects the Main Living areas to the Master Suite. The compressed stair sequence travels under the “bridge” upward revealing a sunny courtyard adjacent to the Main Residence, separate Guest Wing, and outdoor living spaces. Materials such as concrete, weathered steel, and natural cedar mirror the site’s native textural and color palette while floor-to-ceiling glass completes the building envelope, connecting the tree canopy to the landscape. Details include: Solar roof, High-efficiency plumbing, LED lighting throughout and Operable window coverings for cooling management.
