Overview:

Crook Residence
Santa Barbara, California

The Crook Residence is spectacularly sited on a promontory with an unobstructed 180–degree view of the Pacific Ocean. The descending slope offered the opportunity to create a more enclosed, protected entry zone at the back of the house, with a contrasting open frontal area which optimized the ocean views. The Spanish–style design utilizes a high meandering stone wall which bisects the house into separate user zones, as well as adding another scale and material which emphasizes the interaction between the room interiors and exterior landscapes.
