Lebovic / Roznicuk villa, Santa Barbara, California

This villa is surrounded by subtropical growth. It is set apart from the flood of middle class haciendas and Victorian villa replicas by its simplicity and purity. The western section houses the high traffic and noisy areas such as the kitchen, garage and laundry facilities. There are no windows on this side due to the close proximity of the neighbouring buildings and the strong, setting sun.

In the central section of the villa is a two-storey space creating a unique living room area and a curved dining room which opens to the north and south onto shaded terraces.

The quiet private section of the residence is oriented towards the east. Situated here is the family room and 3 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and closet space. Windows are ideally situated to provide stunning views of the ocean, mountains and a historical Spanish "mission".
