Montecinto Residence | By Barton Myers Associates

The Montecito Residence by Barton Myers Associates Located in the hills above Montecito, California is an architectural masterpiece. The Architects designed the home to feature sliding glass walls and windows, allowing the local breezes to cool the home on warmer summer days. The house takes full advantage of the indoor-outdoor living made possible by California Coast’s mild climate. Designed specifically without air-conditioning, it is cooled exclusively by cross-ventilation.
