The expansive top floor of the residence is a open concept space which contains the living room, kitchen, breakfast area and terrace. Walnut cabinetry is accented by steel and the fireplace is clad in travertine.

Planes of glass, along with steel and board-formed concrete are signature design elements and found elegantly woven together throughout the home.

The expansive top floor of the residence is a open concept space which contains the living room, kitchen, breakfast area and terrace. Walnut cabinetry is accented by steel and the fireplace is clad in travertine.

Planes of glass, along with steel and board-formed concrete are signature design elements and found elegantly woven together throughout the home.

A board-formed concrete wall serves as a backdrop to the patinated bronze entry door and mahogany ceiling at the main entrance.

The main entry is located on the middle level of the residence and the adjoining upper and lower levels are connected via a steel and walnut staircase surrounded by a day-lit garden.

A two-story glass wall welcomes filtered light into the space while maintaining privacy from neighbors by utilizing a sideyard bamboo garden.

A day-lit garden, which can opened or closed off from the main entry, features an artist-commissioned fountain made from a granite boulder.

The Strand level beach room features a combination spa and plunge pool. Pocket sliding doors allow the room to be opened or closed off completely from the elements.

Ideal for entertaining or peaceful relaxation, the space is further enhanced by a fireplace, landscaped alcove, and fountain.

The indoor and outdoor material palattes were chosen for their natural warmth, beauty and simplicity. Here, sunlight plays across expertly crafted board-formed concrete which is juxtaposed with walnut and accented by steel.

Location up high and out of public view, the master bedroom opens out to the beach and ocean via a sophisticated system of sliding glass doors.

The walls of the luxurious master bathroom are clad in travertine and Venetian plaster, while the ceiling is mahogany. Metal louvers on the sliding doors provide privacy and open from the shower to the master terrace beyond.

A white plaster roof plane levitates above a corner balcony and provides ample shade. A planter integrated into the exterior walls of the balcony offer a unique opportunity for a bit of greenery in the urban beach landscape.
