AB design studio's Modern Cottage just completed construction ...and we have photos to share! Clay Aurell & Josh Blumer, co-owner's of AB design studio Architecture Firm celebrate the completion of a new modern residence in Santa Barbara.
The photos of AB design studio inc.‘s Modern Cottage have just come out! This property has been a long time coming. With the exception of garden and a front fence, the house is finally finished. We wanted to get these photos of the building itself before the beautiful landscape is put in so we could show you what is underneath.
Our client's goal was to transform her modest little 1920's cottage into a modern home that is consistent with her family’s long interest in modernism and modern art. As a local gallery owner and community supporter, she wanted a home that reflects her own passion for modern art. The owner also desires a simple home with modern styling to support her artistic impulses and create a modest and comfortable living for her, her two children and her parents.
The design responds to the site, the views and to the tight constraints of the 5,000SF corner lot. The solution concentrates on interior and exterior spaces that are functional without excess. Keeping it small and providing adequate common space helps the family co-exist in comfortable proximity with enough space to allow for privacy.
