The Iconic Butterfly House

You can see some of Sean’s architectural elements as they appear in the iconic northern California Butterfly House redesigned by world renowned interior designer Jamie Bush as showcased here in Architectural Digest’s 2018 issue. The original 1951 home by architect Frank Wynkoop was so named for the structure’s signature winged roof design. Perched atop a rocky coastal outcropping, the residence was one of only a handful of oceanfront properties in the area. Sean’s elements all manufactured from MecSoft Corporation’s RhinoCAM toolpaths can be seen in the Kitchen, Lanai Built-Ins (couches, bookcases), Curved Built-In Couches in Great room, Daughters Vanity & Built-In Bed with storage drawers in stairs and play area below, Kevin’s Office and the Laundry Room. Have a look at some of the images below.
