Above: The home stands proudly on the Manhattan Beach Strand with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. Here we look south towards the Palos Verdes Peninsula.

At Right: The design of beachfront façade is arranged around four two-story mahogany “masts”. Behind them, a purposeful asymmetry maintains ocean views and interior privacy for the midlevel master suite and boardwalk-level beach room.

Above: The top floor outdoor living and dining room enjoys spectacular views and privacy from the busy beach below. Bronze bi-folding louvered panels can be opened or closed to control light and protect the space from the elements.

At Right: A detail of the outdoor living and dining room with the bi-folding louvered panels in the closed position. This space is immediately off the kitchen and living room and serves as an extension of those areas.

Above: The beach room features an impressive bar with bronze shelving, a lounge area, and pool table. Pocketing mahogany glass sliding doors open the space directly onto the Strand.

At Right: A beautiful detail showing the variety of textures and materials in the beach room. Horizontal mahogany wood paneling is backlit and stands proud of board-formed concrete. The flooring is grey limestone.

At Right: Another view of the mahogany-clad circular staircase. The stair connects the middle entry level with the top-floor living level.
