In a city as vast and as populated as Los Angeles, the experience of driving any one of the small winding roads into the Palos Verdes Hills is quite unexpected. Romance and nostalgia are culled from each footpath-like street that winds up and around the hillside. One moment you are bathed in the warm glow of the afternoon sun, and the next, cooled by the breeze beneath a canopy of rustic trees. This imagery serves as the inspiration for the design of this single family residence.

The project consists of a 2 story residence, detached single story guest house and studio, detached pool house all with a central courtyard water feature. Scale and composition generate spatial continuty and visual connectivity amongst the structures. An organic palette of finishes blends together the interior and exterior spaces. Passing from one level to the next, or from one room to another, one is surrounded by views to the exterior - connected to the outside, engergized by the natural setting.
