This 10,000 sq ft single family home is located inside a mountain reserve, minutes away from the ocean. Due to this particular location, the restrictions and limitations
on the design are considerable, and each project needs to follow not only the design guidelines established by the county, but also a careful integration with the neighbouring buildings.
The gable roof with Spanish tile is characteristic in this area, and stone facades are predominant in the higher-end residences. Also, a delicate study needed to be done to integrate the monumental glass openings, a requirement in the brief by the owners.
Casta Residence is organized in three stories that interact with each other to minimize
the impact of this massive structure in the landscape, and also to create different type of uses for the house.
