S|M: BLUFF

Deep green, net zero design office located on a bluff in Santa Maria, CA overlooking agricultural fields and the Pacific ocean. Hillside construction featuring passive design paired with the latest in building technology yields this low profile, low maintenance, low carbon footprint flexible plan creative space. High thermal mass regulates temperature, extensive glazing on both vertical and horizontal planes offers bright, natural lighting, while deep south-facing overhangs shield from glare-inducing direct light. Operable windows bring in fresh air and reduced barriers between indoors and outdoors tie occupants with their natural surrounding for happier, more productive work. The angular design is dynamic and both mimics and delineates the structure from its surroundings. Design in progress.
