This residence is located on a narrow parcel of Coronado Island in San Diego, California. Ribbons of modulated stone extend from the street toward the house in response to façade’s relief and as a departure from the typical front lawn. The stone ribbons continue, absent planting, to create an entry procession to the residence. Floor-to-ceiling glass sliders open the living space into the central courtyard where a guest house and an acrylic pool define the courtyard boundaries. A large basalt stone bench intersects the courtyard creating two distinct spaces, one for entertaining and the other for melaleuca-shaded play space for the kids. The secluded roof deck consists of sculptural planters, succulent trays, and stone pavers, offering a private retreat. A bamboo grove at the rear of the property provides screening for the roof deck above while the yellow-green stalks create a sculptural effect against the ebony-stained fence below.
