Santa Barbara Sunset Breezehouse

Starting at 10:00 am this Saturday, June 14, a custom-made Sunset Breezehouse designed by MKD will be open to the public in Santa Barbara, California.  The open house will happen in conjunction with the Built Green Santa Barbara Expo, Conference, & Tour, but if you’re not able to attend, Michelle Kaufmann has been posting photos and details of the home for the past couple weeks.  The home, in addition to having all the various green materials and products typically used in MKD homes, has a PV solar array and sustainable landscape design that fits the home just perfectly. 


Perhaps one of the most stunning elements of the home, however, is the operable trellis system from LouvreTec.  The aluminum trellises provide a smart form of shading and create a linear aesthetic that’s incredible.  Check the photos below.
