Nestled on a 16,000 square foot property this home offers both ocean and golf course views. It’s “Z” shape design helps to separate the utility functions for the public and private wings. Rising from a single story nearest the street to a double story volume along the north side of the property, the structure appears gently from the street yet has an impactful impression as you enter the grounds and walk toward the entry. Approaching the entrance of the dwelling, you are given a direct view through the house to the ocean beyond.

Adhering to the strict design guidelines for the neighborhood, the structure is set back from the street to facilitate both a gracious entry and to capture as much of the potential view as possible to the back of the property. Concealing the motor court and private driveway is a wall of board form concrete, which also acts as an acoustical barrier. This wall defines the public wing of the dwelling.

The entry hall features a dramatic board form concrete wall rising over 26 feet high along the main staircase, drawing the eye upwards. This concrete wall extends beyond the continuous skylight, allowing the wall to be drenched with natural light throughout the day.

The use of concrete as the strongest building material is complemented by the warmth of Western Red Cedar siding and walnut flooring and cabinetry. Crisp white steel troweled stucco on the exterior facade helps to balance out these materials while creating a spectacular clean line against the blue sky. “The overall composition of building massing, spatial relationships, natural light, voluminous space, textural juxtaposition and a rich palette of materials and textures bring this building to life,” states the architects.

What We Love: This modernist villa features a stunning exterior facade that opens into an equally impressive interior. A spacious floor plan offers a harmonious flow while beautifully connecting the indoors with outdoors. Outside, an enticing swimming pool is large enough to host family and friends while being surrounded by nature. Overall the architecture of this home offers an exquisite mix of materials and opulent living spaces, creating a decadent home for living and entertaining.
