Good Sea Ranch House Design

I don't care for most Sea Ranch architecture. Too sterile, and no overhangs, which is just dumb here on the west coast. Landscaping at SeaRanch, by Laurence Halprin, however, is brilliant; he just left everything as was, coyote bush and all.

This house, however, looked good to my eye.

Aloha, Lloyd. Yeah, good call on the overhang detail. Have same problem here in Hawaii, especially on windward sides. The code ... or at least it used to ... allow for a little extra overhang. But, still see a lot of austere roof lines, with the rain freely entering through open windows. It's a bitch on screen frames, sills and carpets.
Thanks for the good eye.
