Malibu Beach House

Malibu, CA

Sited on a long, linear oceanfront lot, this home maximizes views of the beach and mountains while providing privacy from neighboring houses. The four-bedroom, five-bathroom house is organized around a central garden with a guesthouse that contains the garage, and exercise room on one end and the main house on the other. A linear atrium through the main house visually connects the ocean to the central garden, allowing natural light to permeate the entire space without compromising privacy. Large pocket doors allow the interior living spaces to extend onto terraces and patios that overlook the ocean and garden.
