Featured Project:

Montecito Tour-De-Feat for Lynda Weinman & Bruce Heavin

Currently, Robin Donaldson is focused on an exclusive project which could be the most noteworthy commission of his career – designing a home for founders, Lynda Weinman and Bruce Heavin. The hilltop residence is expected to be fully integrated into its surrounding environment, embedded into the natural landscape to remain completely hidden from a birds-eye view. Composed entirely of concrete, the rumored residence is an utterly innovative structure that only 21st-century technology can create.
