Altamira Residence

Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the home occupies a 20-acre site along the coast of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. The project is a 15,500 square foot complex with a main residence, study, guesthouse, and garage.

The design was inspired by the natural topography of the site and the client’s interest in geology. Responding to the untouched feel of the land and the geography in the area, the home’s floor levels cut into the terrain, making the structures appear to be emerging from the earth. The house captures a series of views that encourage the journey through the site.
