Designed from the ground up, this new 4,700 s.f. home in Santa Monica, California enjoys spectacular ocean views from expansive terraces and enormous windows. Nestled close to existing trees, the home feels more like a tree house hidden in the branches, than a modern home in a large metropolitan city. Part rustic cabin, part beach house, the home incorporates traditional wood shingles, rough stone, and craftsman details, in contrast to modern corner glass windows and over scaled skylights. This blending of traditional and modern elements gives the home its unique personality.
