Piechota Architecture has designed Carmel Valley Residence of 5,100ft² (474m²). Located in the Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel Valley, California, United States, the residence took its name from the area.
The home’s program is split between two structures, each completing one arm of the “L” and connected by an enclosed second-story bridge. The split program separates the main living spaces from the master and guest suites, and also opened up space for more outdoor programming. The house hugs the perimeter of the forest, its orientation defined by its prioritization of views. Taking advantage of the trees as framing elements of their own, expansive windows throughout leave the job of framing to the oaks themselves, stepping aside and recognizing the ability of the trees to dictate where the eye will settle.
