I can't remember how Jeffers Design Group landed on my radar, but I'm awfully impressed by the interior they designed for the glass and steel Caterpillar House in California's Carmel Valley.
It would have been all too easy for JDG to stick to the stark modernism of so many similar glass box homes. Instead, the firm managed to imbue the residence with the warmth of a midcentury ranch, reflecting the architect's original inspiration and the surrounding landscape of the San Lucia Preserve.
Built by Feldman Architecture, the Caterpillar House is the first LEED Platinum custom home on the California Central Coast.
