DEL MAR HOUSE | The site for this house in an undeveloped piece of land in Del Mar with incredible natural site features and indigenous landscaping. The resulting 6,500 SF residence utilizes materials of natural stone, board formed concrete and cor-ten steel to relate the sliding linear planes and stacked volumes of the design into the greater site. Programmatically, the client’s interest in providing a gathering space for friends and extended family, encouraged a courtyard scheme with guest rooms, living areas, kitchen and dining areas surrounding a flexible outdoor space that includes a pool, barbecue, covered outdoor dining and a bar. At the lower level, there is a three car garage, a wine room and both wet and dry saunas.
