Fabulous modern update overlooking San Diego Bay: Wave House

The Wave House was custom designed in 2004 by Safdie Rabines Architects to take advantage of the sites spectacular views over the San Diego Bay, California. Nestled on a steep canyon, the architects maximized the views by incorporating a luminous atrium that is thirty-five feet long, forming the horizontal and vertical planes of the dwelling, interlinking all three floors of the property. The entryway to the residence is linked up with the lush gardens below. A double family room family room is nestled into the hillside, opening out to the terraced gardens, creating a seamless indoor-outdoor connection. The living and dining area as well as the kitchen are located above in order to maximize their views. On the third level you will find the master bedroom suite that is graced by a softly curving room that appears to float atop its glass walls. Also on the property is a guest house, pool house and a gazebo that cascades down the steep hillside.

When this property was eventually sold, new owners took ahold of it in 2012 and invited the architects back to update and customize the home to further meet their lifestyle needs. Custom designed furnishings were matched up with bold hues and patterns, set against subdued interior finishes of stone flooring and wood paneling. The guest house on the property was remodeled to accommodate a rooftop deck as well as a fire pit, which extended the living space outdoors, perfect for entertaining!

What We Love: The remodel of the Wave House is characterized by bold edits in both color and pattern adding some fantastic visual aesthetics to a more neutral material palette. The master bedroom suite having its own private floor is heavenly… but we really love the rooftop deck for enjoying the beautiful San Diego sunsets over the bay!
