Tradition meets Functionality in Obreval Architecture’s design

 

Obreval Architecture’s Carpinteria ADU, situated in Carpinteria, California, showcases a contemporary take on Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU), blending functionality and tradition. Positioned within a circular patio, the design prioritizes the seamless integration of outdoor and indoor living, creating a tranquil living space. A notable design element is the semicircular cutout enveloping the dwelling, inviting ample natural light. Emphasizing outdoor space on a small backyard, the glass cutout maximizes sunlight, fostering an airy atmosphere. The interior features exposed wood beams, combining rustic and modern aesthetics, adding character to the space.

The central firepit serves as both a focal point and a gathering spot, enhancing aesthetics and functionality. The ADU layout connects living, dining, and relaxation spaces, embracing radiant energy from the patio. Sustainability is integral for the design team at Obreval Architecture, incorporating energy-efficient features and eco-friendly materials for a responsible and compelling dwelling. Carpinteria ADU redefines ADU concepts, creating a harmonious living experience where thoughtful design converges with light and nature.
