This residence is situated at the top of a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It is designed to maximize views, natural light, and ocean breezes. The parti divides the program into two main structures on either side of a sheltered courtyard. On the ocean side, the two-and-a-half-story main house accommodates the primary living spaces. A double-height living space provides generous art walls and features a burnished block fireplace and tall glass sliding doors that open the interior to the exterior spaces. The rear guest structure accommodates the garage and three separate living quarters for friends and family. When the structures are open to the elements they form a complex of open air pavilions connected through the landscape. The entire composition is tied together by a rich and elegant palette that includes steel-troweled stucco, exposed concrete block, stainless steel railings, walnut millwork, cast glass partitions, and Rheinzink.
