San Luis Obispo, California
The Ruggles’ residence occupies a
dramatic hillside site at the west
entrance to the City. It is designed
as three perfectly square pavilions
with interlinking spaces, containing
the two-story, two-bedroom
residence, Joanne’s art studio, and
a guest room and garage.
The steel structure lands only at the corners, preserving column-free
interiors with large unbroken surfaces
for the couple’s extensive art collection.
The overall form of the Ruggles home reflects the shapes of surrounding hills, while detailing is precise and museum-like throughout. The project was the recipient
of a San Luis Beautiful award.
Client: Phillip and Joanne Ruggles
