This project was designed as a spec home that maximized the entire property and views of the ocean. The layout includes plenty of indoor environments to take advantage of the comfortable climate here in Southern California. The lot has strict height conditions allowing only one story structures so the basement was needed to maximize the program. A main design objective was to create a powerful impression once you enter the home onto the courtyard. Then there is a transition over a fountain and into the home with immediate views straight out onto the back deck and ocean view.

The basement created a unique opportunity to create a sunken courtyard with water features, a green wall, and added natural light.
