Diagonal House

LA Jolla, CA

Located on a steep hillside in La Jolla, this custom home floats above its site, carefully stepping down the slope to create large outdoor terraces while maximizing the home’s ocean views. The upper level consolidates the primary living spaces and master bedroom to one floor, with floor-to-ceiling glass and large skylights creating a light-filled penthouse suite. An angled glass wall divides the simple rectangular floor plate to create an invisible line between indoor and outdoor spaces, and a retractable wall creates the feeling of an open air pavilion with unobstructed views that extend for miles.
