Del Mar Residence contemporary-exterior

Del Mar Residence

This project, located within the Camino Del Mar 'beach community', posed an interesting challenge. The project sits within the low lying areas of the San Dieguito River flood plain which required that the building finished floor be set at an elevation 7'-0" above the existing grade. Our goal in dealing with the flood plain requirements and the floor area restrictions was to create a simple, efficient plan that would maximize light, air and privacy, as well as have a strong connection between indoor and outdoor living. We have chosen durable materials appropriate to the neighborhood context that would perform well under a marine environment and satisfy the client's desire for an "autheticity of materials" with a contemporary aesthetic.

Thanks for your question.... The the color is close to Dunn Edwards "Gardenaia'. It is also important to specify the finish of the stucco, not just the color. We always ask for a "Santa Barbara" smooth finish, with a "super cement" scratch coat to avoid excess cracking.....Consider the following specification.......SCRATCH, BROWN & PAINTED WITH TWO (2) COATS OF THOROCOAT 200 OVER the brown coat. I hope this helps

Hello Devalsoni,

I agree with Allard Jansen. Ipe is definitely the best of the best natural wood with the least maintenance. If you'd like a different color and something more cost effective, Brazilian Teak (Cumaru) is a good option as well. It features almost the same characteristics of Ipe but at a lower price.

Hope this helps. If you need more information feel free to give us a call or send a message.

It looks custom for sure. Allard Jansen Architecture did an amazing job designing this home. I suggest you contact them directly, but if you are not able to, a good resource for fabrication of custom railings in Indianapolis is: MyersDesign.
They do most of my design fabrication and are a great resource for many things.
