Situated in Big Sur, California, the Buck Creek House was designed by Fougeron Architecture on the slope of a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The design was inspired by the banana slug, which is commonly found in nearby seaside forests, while a modern glass and metal facade contrasts with its surroundings. A copper-covered south wall protects from the sun, while to the north an entire glass wall allows filtered light into the residence which houses three bedrooms. Entry is from the road above, which also features a terrace that is protected from the cliffs and the elements.
