MOUNTAIN TOP HOUSE

SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CA

2012


 

Located on a mountaintop with 360-degree views, the 6500 sq. ft. residence soars from the entry widening over the 90 foot length to the gallery living space. The diagonal of the pool and dining intersects the space leading the eye from the ocean through the house over the pool to the surrounding mountains.  Out ofthe gray trapezoid volume the auxiliary spaces ( bedrooms, offices and gym) are expressed as white volumes along the gallery space. There is a office and night viewing deck stacked on top of the above 20’ diameter water tank required in case of fire and keeping it from being a separate blight in the landscape.
