Malibu Architect | Zuma Meadow Farm

Malibu Architect | Built on the site once occupied by the bunkhouse of one of Malibu’s oldest and most renowned farms, the Zuma Meadow Farm captures the spirit and simplicity of traditional California farmhouses. Rustic but polished, comfortable yet graceful, valuable yet unpretentious, solid and stable, history and a story. The home’s rustic historicism is achieved through extensive use of reclaimed materials. Features include a heavy timber frame constructed of hand hewn and rough sawn timbers as much as 150 years old, reclaimed terra cotta, oak and limestone floors from Italy, and stone and reclaimed barn-wood cladding. New materials used were carefully selected to coordinate with the old. Examples include Corten “rusty” roofing and a pervious concrete driveway that has the look and absorption of decomposed granite without the mess and maintenance issues.

The Zuma Meadow Farm consists of an “original” farmhouse and its two barns. One barn has been connected to the farmhouse and “converted” into living space. California’s stringent earthquake code required that the home’s hand hewn timber frame and trusses be augmented with a significant amount of steel. The design and construction, however, carefully conceal all steel and connections, and the result is reminiscent of a historic Amish timber frame barn. The timber frame in the house proper features rough sawn, old growth softwoods reclaimed from demolished warehouses in the Pacific Northwest. The required heavy steel frame in this part of the house has also been carefully concealed, lending the house the look and feel of historic farmhouse or lodge. Endless variety within a distinctly unified identity.
