The design and layout of this place takes advantage of some kickass views while addressing the ever changing SoCal climate. The goal was to manage the hot summer temperatures and crazy wind-driven brush fires. To help reduce the risk of fire they tried to minimize the overall height of the building while cladding the place in some sleek metal siding. The beefy, wide overhangs along with the concrete floors help keep that summer heat down.
Check out the rest over at my guest home for the day, Fred Flare.
