Form4 Architecture has won first place at the International Design Awards for its project, Sea Song, which additionally was honored by the Green Good Design Awards presented by The European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design, and Urban Studies, in collaboration with The Chicago Athenaeum’s Museum for Architecture and Design.
Located in Big Sur on the coast of California, Sea Song is designed as an unobtrusive form to the natural landscape. “Likened to a trio of gliding Manta Rays, its environmental footprint is virtually null, being raised on a cantilevered podium.”
To further its goals of sustainability, the project is additionally designed to be self-sustaining, net-zero energy, and is aiming for LEED Platinum certification via technologies such as photovoltaics, self-cleaning glass, rainwater retention, and xeriscape.
