The Beach House is a 6,200 s.f. oceanfront single-family residence located in Malibu, California. The site is organized around a central garden with a guesthouse containing the garage, home office, and second floor exercise room located towards the street, and the four bedroom, five bathroom main house located towards the ocean. A linear atrium through the house visually connects the ocean with the central garden while allowing natural light to permeate throughout the space. Large pocket doors connect the interior spaces to exterior terraces and patios that face the ocean and the interior garden.
