The Ladera’s Residence by Barton Myers Associates:

“The Residence is situated on a 1-acre site in an environmentally sensitive habitat with dense vegetation and large boulders.

The program includes a 3,000 sf main residence, 500 sf garage and a 50′ lap pool. The main residence is broken up in two wings: one includes the living and kitchen areas and the second includes the bedrooms, bathrooms and library.

The intention behind the design strategy is tectonic design research that creatively envisions a flexible prototype for mass-produced housing using steel construction and standardized off-the-shelf industrial components. Since a majority of all steel is manufactured from scrap metals from recycled automobiles it is a “green” material.

The design advances concepts of adaptive space while creating a “kit of parts” that can be assembled into 12-foot modules as an alternative to the manufactured buildings mitigating the unpredictable link of manufactured units to serviced land.”
