From the architect. The clients approached Feldman Architecture to design a retreat for eventual retirement and visits from their grown children – a retreat befitting the natural beauty of the location in the Santa Lucia Preserve, a 20,000 acre private development and land trust near Carmel, California. The clients were meticulous in the selection of the site, searching for two years for a spectacular piece of land which was flat enough to accommodate living on one level. In an initial meeting with Feldman Architecture, the clients noted their vision of butterflies alighting on the meadow site which the architects took as inspiration. They also expressed a desire to integrate indoor and outdoor spaces with a simple, modern aesthetic and to provide separate spaces for the growing family.

Sitting lightly on the land, the house is divided into three smaller pavilions which are capped by expressive, butterfly roofs. Each pavilion has a separate function: the central pavilion houses the main living, dining, and cooking spaces, while two other pavilions provide for sleeping, bathing, and relaxing.The structures are modest in square footage, yet each expands into an outdoor room that open up to dramatic views of the canyon below and hills beyond.

Beyond poetic gesture, the butterfly roofs bring in views of the surrounding hills, expand the main living spaces into the outdoors and also harvest rainwater. Water, an increasingly limited resource, is celebrated throughout the design. Each roof funnels water to a rain chain fountain and into landscape collection pools, which then gather in cisterns where it is stored and used to irrigate the landscape. In addition, the pavilions were sited to allow water to flow under the office bridge during the rainy season and for storm water to seep slowly into the ground in the main courtyard.

The neutral palette of the house – concrete floors and walls, large glass openings, plywood ceilings, and steel structure – also flows from indoors to outdoors. The use of concrete and large expanses on glass openings acts as a heat sink – absorbing heat from the sunlight all day and releasing that heat at night. The energy costs for the house are very low, given that all the spaces are naturally lit throughout the day, but a solar array is also located out-of-sight and provides about half the home’s energy needs.
