West Mountain

Located on the side of a mountain above Santa Barbara, the client had a vision, "RANCH MEETS MANHATTAN".  Luckily Sarah has lived in both Manhattan and on a ranch, so had strong ingrained references for both and clear ideas how they could complement each other. Taalman Koch Architecture created the envelope and building system, which was expertly completed by Paul Franz Construction. SWDA acted as lead on interior finishes, kitchen, and bath designs, cabinetry, furnishings, and worked with  Santa Barbara artisans, and Steven Buesch, the amazing project foreman, to create "the most beautiful front door in the world"  made out of slabs of American Walnut.
