Engel Estate

Point Loma, California - 18,000 sq ft

Located on a one acre site on the bluffs in Point Loma this homes focus is the ocean to the west and the City of San Diego to the east. Sculpted plaster wall forms enclose the main house including entertainment spaces, library, a wine cellar, exercise room, master suite and guest bedrooms. An enclosed lap pool connects to the main house and overlooks the tennis court and pavilion. The guest house sets above the ten car garage and shop.

The architecture is characterized by simplicity of materials, details and finishes. Sculpted, stucco wall planes with natural patina are highlighted with modular window openings. Limestone floors and clay tile roofs are accented with sandblasted beams and ceilings. With sustainability in mind the orientation and massing provides efficient warmth in the winter and cool breezes in the summer.
