A Rediscovered Residence - - Archived


Designed to be a constant center of activity where the owner—a single professional with grown children—can enjoy hosting her family and friends, the interior spaces in this extensive renovation were completely reorganized.


The master bedroom, bath, and closet have no doors separating them, and are open to the ocean view.


The entry sequence was designed to create privacy from the street—a mature olive tree sits in the entry courtyard behind a board-formed concrete wall, providing glimpses of the ocean beyond while entering the house.


The simple material palette of concrete, stucco, walnut, and Rheinzink (titanium zinc) panels keeps the architecture focused on the site and place.
