Montecito    |   Montecito, California

The clients were looking for a beach house to be built on this site overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the Channel Islands, and the house design responds with a guest wing and a tower oriented to take in the ocean view. At the clients’ direction, Coburn designed a building that has a timeless appearance, looking as if it has been sitting on-site for decades. This intention was achieved with salvaged materials, focused design work, and a high level of detail typically found in the great homes of the past.
