Inspired by the coastal regions along the Mediterranean and Mexican Riviera, the home terraces down the hillside to the beach below. The temperate climate, abundant sunlight and breathtaking vistas, foster the flow between the inside and the outside.

The house and landscape design are fused to its surroundings, and respond to the unique qualities of the site’s sloping topography. Multiple tiered terraces maximize the ocean views and are connected by exterior stairs. The open living spaces, exquisite surfaces and luxurious furnishings are combined to create a casual coastal retreat.

Varied and enduring natural and man-made materials evoke permanence and respond to their context. Here, coastal retreats reflect sand, ocean, and horizon.
