Unique Beach-house Interior design by Schola Architecture in Laguna California


Also called the Temple Hills Residence because of its positions on the hills of Laguna Beach, California. The design project for this beach Residence is a study in connections from Schola Architecture, where they were succesfully remodeling an existing 1950’s post and beam beach cottage into a unique house with two faces connected through a thin sheet of glass. Nestled into a steeply sloping 5,000-square foot site, the volumes step up the hillside to the rear of the existing home creating an ascending series of interior and exterior spaces, giving access to all levels of the property. With the monolithic concrete block mass anchors the addition; from which structure and glass pin wheel off creating ever dematerializing living spaces that open up to the views as one moves up through the home. At the heart of the stainable strategies employed throughout the home is the reuse of the entire existing home. In addition, solar orientation, deep overhangs and operable glass allow the house to breathe throughout the year with little mechanical assistance. The palette is a mix of renewable and exposed building materials, eliminating the need for secondary finishes.
