Client Need

The existing home sat on a challenging lot, sandwiched between Dolphin Place and Abalone Place in Bird Rock, La Jolla. The lot is significantly higher on the inland side than on the ocean side, and the client wanted to maximize the limited space and take advantage of the views across the coastline.

Our Solution

Working with a top local architect, we designed a home that incorporated a subterranean garage. To accomplish this, we had to stabilize the neighboring residence and begin with extremely robust foundations to support the three-story structure. Designed around a central William Ohs custom kitchen, the new home maximizes every inch of the lot and includes a rooftop terrace with fantastic ocean views.


Challenging lots call for design ingenuity, something we've had four generations to perfect.
This home is now three stories (four if you count the rooftop deck) and features a subterranean garage.
The interior is designed around a stunning William Ohs custom kitchen.
The interior was also designed to feel bigger than it actually is.
