On the Coast, Malibu, CA

Designed for a sloping site on the Pacific Coast Highway, this design draws on traditional California rancho architecture in its detailing. However, broad views of the ocean compelled a contemporary approach to windows, terraces, and the de  rigueur swimming pool.

The main entrance is on the uphill side of the property.
The rear elevation is the view side of the house, looking out over the Pacific ocean.
