Modern Cottage selected for AIA ArchitecTours
AB design studio is proud to be part of this great event.
We are very pleased to announce that one of our residential projects, the 'Modern Cottage,' has been selected to be part of this year's ArchitecTours hosted by the Santa Barbara chapter American Institute of Architects. This annual event draws attention to the extraordinary architecture all over our community. Fueled by a new theme each year, those selected for this year's tour fall into the category of 'Architecture With a Story.'
Our contemporary cottage began as a small remodel addition to an existing single-family residence with the intention of providing a second unit to house three generations under one roof. The environmentally friendly, modern home features passive heating and cooling techniques along with energy efficient windows and doors. Equally, heat reflective standing seam metal roofing and siding were used to shield the residence from the California sun. The elegantly austere home was carefully designed to fit within many municipal constraints while satisfying the client's needs and now serves as an exemplary model for future family living.
Don't miss out on your opportunity to tour this beautiful modern residence along with 8 other fabulous properties! This year's tour is on Saturday October 3 from 10am-4pm and will culminate with a festive party. Early bird tickets are just $55/person and can be purchased at www.http://aiasb.com/architecTours2015.cfm.
We hope to see you there!
