Robins Residence

Del Mar, California - 4,500 s.f.

Gold Nugget Award of Merit “Best Renovated Home”
Pacific Coast Builders Conference

Located on the bluffs above the Torrey Pines Lagoon and beach this three story home, accessed through its curving stairway, has panoramic views from all levels to the lagoon and the Pacific Ocean.

This modern home with its white plastered walls and curving solar shading element retains a strong sense of warmth and livability through the use of the wood flooring, soft plaster finishes, wood cabinetry and space relationships. The two story volumes allow light to diffuse through the home via clerestory windows and skylights. Exterior terraces from each level transition the living area to the outside.

Sustainability and energy conscious design was considered from the early planning including site orientation, long strategically placed overhangs, and material/equipment selections.
