The Partington Point House, which architect Mickey Muennig renovated in 1995.
The Post Ranch Inn's beginnings on homesteaded ranch land inspired Muennig to create a structure with a homey feel.
Muennig’s Green House utilizes the western sun of the dramatic Big Sur coastline.
Muennig’s Treehouse, part of the famed Post Ranch Inn, features Cor-Ten panels.
Can’t afford a slice of the cliff and years of planning and permits? Do as designer Caroline Brandes did and roll an Airstream up—a nicely designed one, of course.
Brandes operates Big Sur Getaway, where folks can rent the renovated Airstreams for a low-key glamping experience surrounded by the area's natural beauty.
