Malibu, CA, United States

Located on a spectacular site overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this private residential compound contains a beach house, semi-detached screening room, guest cottage, and pool pavilion. The relatively opaque street facade of the main house offers privacy, shielding the inhabitants from the noise of the Pacific Coast Highway. The waterfront facade, however, features a two-story porch opened to the views and ocean breezes. The facades are clad with wood siding characteristic of the area. The interiors are open and airy, consistent with the casual nature of summertime and vacation use.
