CASE STUDY:
Hillside Development - The Goldman Residence in
Santa Barbara foothills

The Project:        
A traditional U-shaped hacienda with infinity pool, porches and patios facing Ocean and mountain views at the end of a ½-mile winding access road.

The Challenge:    
Fit the proposed rectangular building with a central inner courtyard onto a small graded pad cut into the brow of a narrow ridge with exposed rock faces and shallow deposits of topsoil.

The Solution:    
Design a foundation system (caissons and grade beams) to support the building and retaining walls to support the infinity pool, porches, patios, access road and vehicular turnaround areas.
