DesignARC Riviera Mediterranean

Situated on a 3.5 acre, oak-studded ridge atop Santa Barbara’s Riviera, the Greene Compound is a 6,500 square foot custom residence with guest house and pool. The home is rustic Mediterranean in style and blends integral color plaster walls with Santa Barbara sandstone, cedar board and batt.




Large windows and sliding pocket doors merge interior and exterior living spaces seamlessly, opening to the pool and island view beyond.




On the interior, attention to detail is exemplified everywhere,  from the beautiful custom tiles in the kitchen and bathroom to the rustic exposed wood beams in the ceilings.




Just as the ceiling patterns vary by room, the wide plank oak floors in the living room give way to an exquisite narrow herringbone pattern in the dining room.





A monumental exterior fireplace and camp-style margarita bar add to this romantic living. Discreetly buried in the mission tile roof, solar panels help to offset the home’s overall energy consumption.





The spectacular location captures unparalleled views of the city, coastal islands to the south, and La Cumbre peak to the north.




The Greene Residence blends in beautifully with the pastoral setting of the ridge while complementing and enhancing this Riviera neighborhood and this truly unique property.

The DesignArc philosophy…
“We believe architecture, at its core, is a dialogue. It is a building or space that is telling you something, making you feel a certain way or reacting to a specific human need. We celebrate and nurture dialogue between art and science, structure and emotion, material and context, environment and shelter, and between ourselves and our clients.”
