vinton residence - monte nido,ca.

Located on large acreage in a valley nestled almost perfectly centered in the Santa Monica Mountains, this was to be the client’s main residence. They wanted it to be a country house. As owner-builders they hired a master builder - Larry Teberg - to do the actual construction. My participation ended not long after these photos were taken as the owners felt an architect was not needed beyond this phase and chose to make remaining design decisions on their own. The finished house looked substantially different than in these photos or as I had envisioned it.  The photos nevertheless manage to record the honest simplicity and promise of a building under construction, but often lost or diminished when work is completed. The property has since changed owners and the house subsequently demolished to make way for another.
