Completed in September 2004, House Ocho is a private residence located within a nature preserve in the Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, California. The house is broken into two separate pavilions totalling 2,900 sf, both topped with a green roof. The home has won several design awards, including the AIA San Francisco Design Award for Energy and Sustainability.
The site of oak forests and steep meadows strongly impacted and inspired Feldman Architecture?s design. In order to reduce the impact of the home?s massing and to preserve site lines, the building settles into the ground and overhanging roofs are planted with tall native grasses. The house is also divided up into a series of pavilions to lessen its overall mass.After passing through an entry grove, visitors can see distant views between and over the various building elements. As they are drawn into the widening view, they are led down from the tree-lined ridge to a large terrace that serves as an outdoor living room for the house.
