Java Residence, Costa Mesa, CA

1-story, 2812 sq. ft., large scale remodel with additions

A featured project and award winner with Houzz.com, this “tear down” was morphed into a luxury home adjacent to a golf course in Southern California. We kept the lines simple, lifting the ceilings to unfold to golf-course views, and infused this 1950’s post-war tract home with Mid-Century mod inspired lines for sleekness. And while the golf-course views were spectacular in themselves, we also introduced an internal courtyard that conveyed a yin-yang atmosphere and ultimately became the home’s core. It introduced functionality, light quality, entry experience, and alleviated the home’s overall privacy. The family ultimately gained the choice of two exterior spaces; one being more “open” to visitors off the golf-course, and the other more private, which provided an elevated indoor-outdoor living spaces that makes this house a true stunner.
