Beryl Street Residence

Location: Pacific Beach, California    Completed: 2002

This ground up custom home, replaced an existing beach bungalow where our clients had lived for 20 years.  The site strategy for the 2,500 sf home was simple; optimize views and outdoor space by minimizing the building footprint and building up, rather than out.
The home is organized around a sun filled central stair atrium that provides access to spectacular white water views of the Pacific from a roof top deck.  Operable skylights at the atrium facilitate natural air-conditioning via thermo-siphoning throughout the home.
