San Francisco-based studio CCS Architecture has designed the Aptos Retreat project, a 2,800 square foot retreat residence comprising “a “living” building and a “sleep” building that overlap at their roofs to create a linkage and sheltered outdoor space.”
Completed in 2009 and designed for a family of eight, this beautiful residence is located in inland from the beach town of Aptos, California in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
Located on the bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the 3,500 square-foot Zeidler Residence by Ehrlich Architects was designed for a retired couple with grown children.
The single-family residence sits on a relatively flat corner lot in Aptos, California.
Interior and exterior living and entertainment spaces are arranged to maximize views, natural light, and ocean breezes within a subtle, sophisticated material palette.
