Paso Robles Residence

Paso Robles Residence
This rural home sits on an 80-acre agricultural site in California's Central Coast wine region. The design directly responds to the wide diurnal temperature fluctuations of its arid climate. Masonry walls anchor the building to the earth and structure the primary living spaces, centering activity around a covered outdoor living room. The design integrates deep overhangs, passive ventilation, photovoltaic electricity, solar hot water and radiant heat.

With a shared interest in exploring design across a wide range of scales, programs, and disciplines, partners Joshua Aidlin and David Darling started Aidlin Darling Design around a woodshop in 1997. With an emphasis on designing for all of the senses they have cultivated a diverse and collaborative studio that acts as the creative hub for an extended network of builders, fabricators, artists, engineers, chefs, and other collaborators. In recent years, the firm has garnered over 125 regional, national, and international awards including the Smithsonian’s Cooper- Hewitt’s 2013 National Design Award for their body of work, a James Beard Award, five American Architecture Awards from the Chicago Athenaeum, two International Civic Trust Awards, and several awards from the AIA, IIDA, and ASLA.
