A Separate Living Space Inside This Home Was Designed For Visiting Relatives

Architect Brett Farrow has completed a new modern home that’s set on a sloping site in the Southern California coastal community of Encinitas.

The home, designed for a young family, also includes space that allows for long visits by relatives. Western red cedar has been used throughout the home to connect the interior and exterior spaces.
