Laguna Beach Residence
This stunning integration of rock and structure exemplifies the innovative ways rock formations can be used to address practical design and construction challenges. In the case of this private home in one of California’s most exclusive beach front communities, local residential covenants required that any home added to the property be built in a way that respects the natural beauty of the area. Thinking out-side of the-box, the owner conceived of a home within a seaside cliff as a creative work around. The di Giacomo team also though to integrate planting crevices within the grain of the overall formation to allow planted vegetation to blend harmoniously with the stone walls.
