House Tour: Midcentury ranch house gets inspiring makeover in Montecito

This stunning 1960s midcentury ranch house was re-imagined by DesignARC, located in the community of Montecito, Santa Barbara County, California. Inspired by another project by the architect, the homeowner’s desired a fresh take on their out-dated, well-worn residence. Originally from Toronto, Canada, the couple is at ease in urban, loft-like spaces. Here, they wished to create a pared-down dwelling that could become their home.

The objective of this renovation project was to completely re-configure the floor plan beneath the existing roof. Spaces were organized to create a harmonious flow throughout the interior spaces. The main priority was to connect all spaces to the outdoors. On either side of the living room, pocket sliding glass doors create an open-air breezeway out of what was once a dark and secluded room. Continuous ridge skylights flood the center of the house with natural light, further blurring the lines between indoors and out.

The minimalist palette consists of essentially three materials: smooth-trowelled plaster, cementitious panel, and fumed-oak floors. With a color scheme of “one white” paint, the interior provides a neutral backdrop to the vibrant relationship the family enjoys with the outdoors, and the mild Santa Barbara climate.
