Chen Residence

This home is situated on a hillside overlooking the San Dieguito Lagoon, the Del Mar fairgrounds and the Pacific Ocean. It is situated on a .66 acre lot. The project consists of a 4,650 square foot home with a large expansive deck, a 400 square foot Guest House and a 500 square foot garage. The cantilevered roofs cascade down the sloped hillside anchored from a stone clad tower.

The long overhangs provide sun control and prevent heat gain to a very transparent home. Building materials include stone, copper, ipe wood siding and plaster. Sustainable features include photovoltaic cells on the roof and a gray water collection and storage system for the site irrigation. The design was a collaboration between the homeowners and the studio with an array of design ideas. The is an example of biophilic design where the lines are blurred from the interior to the exterior spaces, satisfying the innate desire of humans to connect to their natural environment.
