This custom house is designed to maximize the views of the San Diego Bay while responding to the steep canyon on which it is located. This goal was accomplished through the incorporation of a 35’ long light-filled atrium that acts as both a horizontal and vertical axis that connects all three levels of the house and engages the entry with the gardens below. A two-story family room nestled into the hillside opens out to terraced gardens while the living room, dining, and kitchen are situated above for maximum views.
