Douglas W. Burdge

This innovative accessory dwelling unit (ADU) series offers four different size and layout options to fit almost any property. From a compact studio, to a two-bed, two-bath home with garage, all configurations meet California ADU size allowances.

The idea for such a flexible solution was conceived in the wake of the 2018 Woolsey Fire, as a way to help families reinhabit their properties while navigating the often years-long process of rebuilding a primary residence. Prominent Malibu, CA architect Douglas W. Burdge designed the homes to provide both comfortable living and lasting property value in a discerning real estate market.

To accomplish this, the Sunset BUD LivingHome incorporates features that balance the city’s strict aesthetic and safety concerns. All designs are constructed from fire-resistant materials and offer upscale finishes, like German plumbing fixtures and Italian porcelain in the bath. Each version makes the most of Malibu’s sweeping ocean views with floor-to-ceiling glass walls that open to the outdoors. The four separate floor plans ensure that there’s an appropriately-sized unit for almost any lot size or setback requirement.

A collaboration between Burdge Architects, Sunset magazine, and Plant Prefab, the Sunset BUD LivingHome can be built quickly, but enjoyed for generations as a guest unit, pool house, or rental home. Like every LivingHome, the Sunset BUD series is designed to meet net-zero standards and ships complete with best-in-class smart home technology and energy monitoring.
