Abstract:
The Butterfly House, a residence in Monterey County, CA, provides unobstructed views of the surrounding environment and wildlife. The house is formed by exposed concrete walls and floors, operable glass walls, and folded roofs inspired by butterfly wings. The central pavilion houses the main living, dining, and cooking spaces, while the two other pavilions provide spaces for sleeping, bathing, and relaxing.
