Here are the pictures of Caramel Valley Residence in California. This Contemporary house was designed by Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects. Located on a sloping site in the Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel Valley, the house fronts onto open grassland overlooking a ranch in the valley below. The clients wanted a compound that recalled their memories of summers spent in the Catskills. The solution breaks the program up into a main house linked by an open log arcade to cabins that climb up the hill and nestle into the oak forest. The house incorporates many sustainable materials and design features. For further detail visit TGHA site.

Maryann Thompson Architects designed this house in contemporary style. A large central living space is oriented towards the south-facing landscape courtyard, while offering views of the straits, through a veil of trees, to the north. Large sliding glass walls open the house to its site. Wood ceilings, a dual sided fireplace and continuous floor planes negotiate between interior and exterior, blurring the house’s boundaries. The project combines vernacular materials with light-filled modern sculptural spaces. For further detail visit Maryann Thompson Architects site.
