Pacific Palisades, CA
5300 SFOn a hillside lot, the plan of this house opens to views of the yard and pool in the foreground and the ocean beyond. Interior spaces flow outdoors into courtyards and gardens that are defined by the natural rock formations with native vegetation. Horizontal cedar wood siding, stacked river stone, smooth trowelled plaster and dark stained wood cabinetry are the material choices for this elegantly modern home. In the afternoon, the expansive roof overhangs shade the rooms and provide for magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean in the distance.
