Unconventional House Ocho Design by Feldman Architecture – San Francisco based Feldman Architecture designed house in the Santa Lucia Mountains Ocho Caramel, California. The house was completed in 2004, and in 2007 received an Energy and Sustainability Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects for the use of passive solar energy for heating and living roofs so the project is very energy efficient.
Unconventional House Ocho Design by Feldman Architecture – According to the architects, Ocho house situated on a beautiful nature area in the Santa Lucia Mountains, this house is a beautiful site consists of oak forests and steep meadows, which drastically limited our unconventional and inspired design. The impact of our buildings to reduce, we sank them in the ground and planted the overhanging roofs with high native grasses. We also divided the space into a series of ‘pavilions’ breaking total mass of the house. After passing an entry forest, visitors can see views in-between and among the various components. As they are drawn into the widening view, they are led down from the tree-lined ridge to a large terrace, which serves as an outdoor living room for the house.
