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.
