STRAND III | The project consists of a 5500 square foot, new custom residence at the Strands in Dana Point. The design evolves the tradition of coastal mid-century modern design by creating a carefully orchestrated sequence of spaces that seamlessly integrate with the temperate climate of Southern California. The intersecting massing volumes are regulated by the rhythm of the vertical screen element of the front elevation that leads one to a reflecting pond and secret garden prior to entry. The project utilizes large sliding glass walls to fuse indoor / outdoor living with spectacular views of the coastline. The spiral staircase is a sculptural focus in the two story volume that serves as the family gathering place. The backyard with pool, jacuzzi, barbecue, upper level wrap around deck and lounge areas extend the living area to take full advantage of the spectacular site.
