Located in a nature preserve in the Santa Lucia Mountains, in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, USA, House Ocho was designed by Feldman Architecture in 2004. Inspired by the site of oak forests and steep meadows, the house totaling 2,900ft² (269m²) is divided up into a series of pavilions to lessen its overall mass.
After passing through an entry grove, visitors can see distant views between and over the various building elements. As they are drawn into the widening view, they are led down from the tree-lined ridge to a large terrace that serves as an outdoor living room for the house. Nearly every room has wide doors that open to the land allowing the modest home to feel much more spacious.
