Pacific Palisades, CA
Custom, 3,800 sq. ft., single-family residence, designed to defy expectations for a structure of this type. While presenting a contextual massing to the street, the house is dematerialized internally by a central atrium which opens to the sky. Light permeates the whole interior space by virtue of slotted windows and skylights installed throughout the house. The kitchen/living room space is equipped with sliding pocket windows that open onto the backyard, encouraging year-round indoor-outdoor living. A modern cabana provides additional usable square footage to the house and features a retractable sliding roof.
