Playa del Rey House I


Single-family house, new construction


Playa del Rey, Los Angeles CA


Completed 2016


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.
