The “Smart Cottage” was originally conceived of as a guest house for a larger residence in the Santa Lucia Mountains in Carmel Valley, California. The design strives for restrained and understated elegance of spaces and materials with maximum flexibility of use.
The original cottage has a living room, bedroom, bathroom and a kitchenette/utility room (we have included this scheme as an alternate). When we reviewed this design for inclusion on the FreeGreen website we looked to make the design more versatile without losing its modest charm. The posted design also includes an efficient galley kitchen and dining area perfect for a ski house in the mountains, beach house, in-law unit or a modest home for a couple or individual.
