GDC Construction has been working with the owners of this residence for more than 20 years, both to preserve an historic home and to expand and modernize the residence. The home was originally built by La Jolla historian Harry Crosby, who imported all the materials from Michoacan, Mexico, and was designed to reflect the style of a Mexican hacienda. However, the original structure was built with insufficient foundations to support it, so GDC was originally brought in to completely modernize and rebuild the foundations. The family was so impressed by our work that they invited us to build a new spa and other additions to the existing residence.
GDC has made this home all-but indestructible, by reinforcing and modernizing the existing foundations to the highest degree. We also worked with the client to use reclaimed materials in all the new construction, combining Asian and Latin American influences to create a truly breathtaking home. GDC also completely modernized the residence’s interior, adding state-of-the-art HVAC, lighting and security systems.
