Coastal Residence

Perched on the crest of a protected hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean and a golf course, a single family residence with an in-law’s unit, on a steeply sloping 3.5 acre lot, is partially carved into the hill. Utilizing an open-plan linear layout, the design strategy was to provide ocean views to all spaces, while creating a hierarchy of glass to wall ratio that is reflective of the more public and private spaces. A palette of natural materials – clear finish hardwood siding structures on a concrete base, minimizes the visual impact of the house from its surroundings.
