A rare lot-and-a-half property on the Hermosa Beach Strand offered new design opportunities. Instead of maximizing the new home’s footprint, KAA saw the extra property width as an opportunity to enhance private outdoor space. The design incorporates a private exterior courtyard garden that connects the public areas on the ground floor.  In contrast to the owners’ home in London, this residence opens to sky, the beach and to the Strand.

The architectural and landscape materials take a cue from the horsetail reeds inside the courtyard.
