Neumann Mendro Andrulaitis Architects (NMA Architects), have designed a new modern house in Montecito, California, that has a landscaped front courtyard to welcome you to the home.

 

A lawn area is combined with a water feature and a rock garden for a contemporary garden look, while a path runs along the side of the garage and leads to the pivoting front door.

Stepping inside, the main social areas of the house have 14 foot high ceilings and custom fabricated, sliding pocketing doors. A 6 foot wide board-form concrete fireplace provides warmth to the open room that houses the living room, dining area and kitchen.
