West Coast Jewel Box
4,300 sf Completed in 2000
Seeking to reflect a casual West Coast lifestyle, embracing openness and simplicity, the client desired a house that would function well both formally and informally. An expressive post-and-beam structure defines the home’s living spaces, while sliding window walls connect the interior seamlessly to outdoor terraces and porches. A continuous internal stair anchors the home, and an L-shaped design enhances ocean and city views and maximizes sun exposure.
