Wine Country Residence

William R. LaVoie, Architect
Santa Barbara and Palm Springs, CA

In the architect's words, a "Santa Barbara Style" residence.  No expense was spared for this home, situated amidst California coastal vineyards. Features include winding concrete staircases and floor-to-ceiling windows that descend through the main floor, opening the living space to the patio and pool area.  This project challenged us with the integration of multiple, unique construction materials,  both traditional and innovative.

  • Light-gauge steel framing
