Baker Residence

(Currently Under Construction)

This beach cottage was purchased in rundown state, but has a phenomenal view of the Pacific from Dana Point to the South. The desire was to renovate and enlarge the existing house. In consideration of the local environment, the existing roof was removed and replaced with an inverted truss. The new flat roof provides a viewing deck, while underneath the “reverse pitched” ceiling captures ample ventilation and natural light. The up-lit spiral stair has translucent stair treads with cast-in reeds. The South window wall can be completely opened and stored to the side to allow ocean breezes and the incredible view to pervade the house.
