Santa Barbara, CA

In 2008 the Montecito Tea Fire ripped through Montecito and Santa Barbara, California, destroying more than 200 homes and burning down a monastery at the top of Mount Calvary. As part of the recovery from the blaze, the owner of five acres just below the monastery wanted to build a mountainside retreat that would include a 534-square-foot studio that would showcase both innovative design and sustainable living.
