Canyon Residence

This design is driven by the owner’s passion for making. A significant sculpture studio, workshop and working vegetable garden, ground the design of this villa. Situated in a shady canyon, one mile from the beach, the project site and the client’s desire to preserve key aspects of the wooded landscape have had a considerable influence on the building design.
Working with several natural site constraints, the building is fundamentally organized around two planes: the horizontal plinth of the garden patio that extends the private garden into the ground floor living spaces; and the vertical datum spine that connects and organizes the various parts of the building program.
