Landegger/Lopes Home Project

This private residence in the Santa Cruz Mountains is the home of Boaconstructor Building and Design. Michelle Landegger and Debrae Lopes run one of California's leading green building and design companies. Their two-story home is a straw bale building utilizing all site-specific soils for earthen plasters. Five distinct colors were created from their native clay soil with sculptural elements hand crafted throughout.
