La Mesa Residence

Located along the Santa Monica Rim, a residential enclave overlooking the Riviera Country Club and Santa Monica Mountains beyond, the La Mesa Residence was designed as pavilions in a garden.

Further responding to the unique site characteristics of both near and far-views, the house volumes unfold as a series of one-room-thick spaces that combine transparency, window walls, and opacity, stone and wood to emphasize the immediate visual relationships between the living spaces and surrounding courtyards and gardens.
