What you are looking right now is a 1,400 square foot home situated on a small town in Stinson Beach, California, USA. The little town of Stinson Beach is said to be one of the few Marin coastal towns where you can observe a rocky coastline that yields to a five-mile-long exquisite beach. The site was attached to the sea to the west area by means of filtered views and the sound of the waves. Moreover, toward the east, was a neighboring home which is far away from the sight of skyline ridge of Mount Tamalpais. The said view provides the architects the great idea to start working on the unique design and style of the house.

The house has a sustainable design that was utilized with open cell foam insulation. It is made up of concrete floors, ordinary ventilation and some recycled resources. The house is powered by solar energy. The south slope roofline gives out a perfect orientation for a broad photovoltaic and solar thermal array. These arrays support the annual energy of the house.

This project had a limited budget and zoning regulations. It has first class space. The architect faced a lot of challenges in building the house plan. In a huge room the designers were able to invent a more impressive and wide space place for all the activities of an extended family and friends. To see more of the different features of the Stinson Beach House, let’s explore the images below.
