DO Residence

Recognized for its scalloped concrete walls, this residence embodies an exploration of organic erosion and subtraction. Its variety of concrete massings anchor every elevation, entering and exiting the home at poetic intersections. Like cliffs carved from water, the scalloped walls are even engrained with the faint grain of the formwork that shaped them.

The larger massing of the property consists of a base void that acts as an armature for living. Through large, pocketing doors and double height spaces, there is a sense of expansion within as the home unfolds into a landscaped, outdoor terrace and pool. With its panoramic ocean views and echoes of that element within its own walls, the architectural language of this structure speaks to a beauty shaped by the impermanent.
