Location: Malibu, Ca, United States

Project Work Status: Completed Projects

A 40-foot Wide Lot Of Oceanfront Property In Carbon Beach, Malibu Is The Site For This Contemporary Beach House. Sandwiched Between Homes Of Varying Styles, The 4,700 Square Foot House Bears A Shingled Facade Typical Of Traditional American Coastal Homes. Inside, The Architecture References Its Clear Japanese Influences. Sliding Pocket Doors Divide Each Room Of The House, Whose Floors, Walls And Ceilings Are Lined In Planks Of American White Oak Wood In Staggered Widths. In The Bathrooms, Soaking Tubs Sculpted From Port Orford Cedar Rest In Niches Clad In Limestone, Extending The Consistently Warm Palette And Nuanced Textures Of The Space.

With Nearly Every Surface In The House Finished In The Same Material, The Purity Of The Spatial Logic Employed Is Cleverly Revealed. The Thoughtful Use Of Symmetry And Continuous Axes Throughout The Interior Spaces Results In A Simplicity Not Typically Found In A House Of This Scale. What Is Perhaps The Most Compelling Feature Of The Design, However, Is The Striking Unobstructed View Of The Pacific Ocean Achieved When Sliding Doors On The South Walls Of Both The Living Room And Master Bedroom Recede Into The Walls, Perfectly Framing The Horizon Of Sea And Sky Beyond.
