Seadrift Residence by CCS Architecture1 Seadrift Vacation Home For A Three Generation Family

Designed to acts as the second home for a three-generation family currently living in San Francisco, the Seadrift Residence beach house is located in a gated vacation community in Stinson Beach, California. The 1,900 square foot sustainable residence features a modern design created by San Francisco-based CCS Architecture, who constructed two separate wings – the living and bedroom zones. Defined by a casual, family-friendly set of interior and exterior spaces, the modern beach house opens its living spaces to decks on both sides -”an intimate courtyard on the sunny, south side and an L-shaped deck on the lagoon side to the north” – creating a seamless connection to the outside.

Decks, a pier and steps leading to the water help connect the house to the surroundings, while the extensive use of glass in between cedar-cladded walls capture views of the nearby hillside and waterfront. According to the architects, the house “ follows a rigorous sustainability program, achieving the Marin Planning Department’s highest rating for resource efficiency.  Photovoltaic panels generate all the home’s electricity, sending surplus energy back to the grid.  All the home’s systems—hot water, HVAC, and radiant heating—are integrated, electric-based, and powered by the PV panels on the roof. The only use of natural gas is at the cooking range, which draws from a 50-gallon propane tank.  With the exception of the propane tank, the home is net-zero in terms of its energy consumption.
