Playa del Rey House I

Project:

Single-family house, new construction

Location:

Playa del Rey, Los Angeles CA

Status:

Completed 2016

Description:

The main volume of the house is an elevated box that has been raised above the beach in order to maintain a sense of privacy while simultaneously capturing the spectacular views.  The elevated box is architecturally defined with custom board-and-batten wood cladding. A modified batten profile serves as a contemporary reference to traditional beach house construction.  Smaller volumes are carved out of the elevated box to spatially define key features of the design: the main entry, views out to the beach, and interior display space for the clients' significant gem and mineral collection.
