Crespo House

Collaboration with Sebastian Mariscal

2009

La Jolla, CA

Located in the hills of La Jolla, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this house was designed as a vacation home for a couple from out of state. A sculpted volume of oxidized corten steel opens up in a play of light and space.

The arrival offers a quick peek into the views that unfold inside the house as you traverse through the courtyard. Upon entering, an expansive view is revealed in an open space plan that allows a flood of light and depth to the project. The main level acts a huge “deck” the opens up on 3 sides. The walkout basement offers resort style rooms and a recreation space. The top floor contains the master bedroom with an oversized garden and remarkable ocean views.
