Text description provided by the architects. Two level residence over beach front guest house and parking. The project takes its inspiration from the eroded and carved bluffs of the Southern California coastline.

The residence is conceived of as a solid form which is carefully eroded to form spaces for living. This process of subtraction provides a variety of exterior balconies, terraces and courtyards for taking in the natural elements and extraordinary views while maintaining privacy in a densely populated community.
