Sea Star – Malibu
Starting Construction in 2019, this is a 6000 sf. home with subterranean garage, infinity pool and 900 sf. guest studio. The kitchen, dining and living rooms all share one open volume with a free standing fireplace – all surrounded on three sides by glass walls. The subterranean garage entry to the house begins with a glass enclosed floating stair and landscaped courtyard that open to the main floor above. The L-shaped plan surrounds an infinity pool overlooking a seasonal creek and foliage. A second open stair leading to the bedrooms is framed by a linear series of interlocking poured concrete walls. The master has a sunset view over the Pacific and large rooftop patio surrounded by a low lying Japanese garden. A series of large landscaped terraces gently step down from the main house to a simple glass enclosed multi-purpose studio structure. Horizontal and vertical wood louvered exterior sliding panels are used throughout the main house and studio as retractable window coverings for privacy and shade.
