View House 240
Manhattan Beach, CA

View House 240 is located in a densely populated beach suburb of stunning sunsets and cool ocean breezes. The small, sloping site and 2,700 square foot program dictated an extremely efficient three story layout with public spaces located on the top floor to capture beach views and assist with passive cooling strategies.

The vertical board and batten clad ground level is topped by a refined plaster cube that is cut and carved to reveal floor to ceiling glass wrapped in a geometry of teak accented fins. A double height, louvered window on the south fašade further breaks down the geometry and harmonizes the predominantly vertical composition.
