A contemporary home perched on a steep hillside on Sycamore Vista Road, Montecito, this home has an unusually massed exterior, with an Entry Atrium between the front Guest Room and Garage, framed by a covered breezeway. The warm interiors benefit from stained softwoods throughout, with exposed heavy timber ceilings and interior daylighting on the second floor from a long clearstory window.
