Meadow Farm's main house is a series of pavilions that echo waves and wind patterns coming from the Pacific Ocean. This LEED platinum-certified development, designed by William McDonough + Partners, is a small organic farm and residence dedicated to restoring native ecology of meadow grasses and coastal live oaks.
Celebrating California’s natural hues and textures, different parts of the house echo the site’s local landscapes. Its rolling zinc roofs echo waves and wind patterns coming off the ocean, while the striated color patterns in rammed earth walls mimic the gentle curve of existing site topography.
The farm is a net energy exporter and includes comprehensive rainwater and graywater harvesting. The project is LEED Platinum certified and is a pilot project in the Sustainable Sites Initiative (SITES).
