Cotter Residence – Chico, CA

A 21st Mid-Century Modern home to be constructed in the beautiful Indian Springs area above Chico. The dramatic site overlooks the Sacramento Valley and the Coast Range beyond. This highly efficient modern style house, reflects the minimalist styling of the original Mid-Century Modern, yet incorporates contemporary innovative solar energy features, fire protection technology and use of sustainable materials.

The house is zoned into three distinct zones; living, family and private; each focused on the central patio and surrounding vistas. Individual private patios give each bedroom an outdoor room, and a centrally located game room provides both family and guest entertaining. The large great room, is proportioned to work for a young couple or large gatherings.

Focused around a south facing outdoor patio-swimming pool entertainment area, this passive solar residence incorporates ideal year-round indoor-outdoor living features. With stunning sunset views over the Sutter Buttes, this environmentally designed home reflects the best of California living.
