Corona del mar


Corona del Mar Residence

Corona del Mar, CA


The project is located in the flower streets of Corona del Mar, approximately a half mile from the Pacific Ocean. The charge was to design a duplex for the corner lot; the front unit will be the permanent home for the client and the back unit will be sold. The client was interested in a design that fit into the beach spirit of the community and that took advantage of outdoor opportunities as much as possible. The tight site required that exterior space be provided by rooftop terraces as well as balconies that serve as “outdoor rooms”. Sustainable features include photovoltaics, a storm water management system, native landscape and an energy star building envelope.
