Nirvana Homes

These low-cost built-for-sale contemporary homes at 1129 and 1137 Nirvana, Santa Barbara, use simple forms and beveled wood siding. South facing glass is used in most living spaces, allowing passive solar heating for the home and through ventilation from cool onshore breezes. The massing of the buildings and decks is asymmetrical, growing from a core near the heart of the building and spreading outward to face the ocean views to the south and southeast. 1137 for MacDonald/Carrochio Development, 1129 for Paradise Development.
