Obreval together with Catch Architecture, has recently completed a modern ADU (accessory dwelling unit) in Carpenteria, California, whose design curves around a circular patio.

A modern ADU with a curved design, includes an open floor plan with the kitchen, dining area, and living room sharing the space.

The semicircular cutout that envelops the dwelling, invites an abundance of natural light into every corner and maximizes the outdoor space on a small corner backyard.

The wood elements, which are showcased on the interior, not only contribute to the overall design ethos but also serve as a reminder of the natural world that surrounds this dwelling. The exposed beams add character and depth, creating a cozy and inviting environment.
