Via Latina

The site for this remodel and addition was a long, narrow lot sandwiched between adjacent neighbors and occupied by a dilapidated house. To the west are ocean views and to the east is an extension of the Torrey Pines Reserve. The owners required a space that could serve as a gallery to showcase his work (a professional photographer) and ample work space for his studio. Avoiding the City’s lengthy and costly Coastal Development Permit (CDP) process was also a priority. SDA concentrated utility spaces in the core to allow an open-plan, living / dining / kitchen space to expand toward the view. A front deck provides an extension to the living space and is a frequent whale watching spot. A side deck allows light to enter into the center of the house while also providing a buffer against adjacent neighbors. The third floor master suite is secluded and enjoys treetop and ocean views.
