Family Beach House With a Striking Silhouette in California: Rockledge Residence

The collaboration between Horst Architects and Aria Design led to the development of Rockledge Residence, an imposing family beach house perched atop a spectacular ridge in Laguna Beach, California. The owner’s brief requested a relaxed beach home for both the family and guests, as well as an optimized indoor-outdoor connection. Accepting this challenge, the project developers envisioned a main residence and a detached guest house, built around a series of connected courtyards.

All inner spaces of this family beach house were designed in a minimalist style and extensive use of glass facilitates a smooth room transition. According to the architects, “materiality and formal choices were informed by a desire to root the structure into the site. Indoor and outdoor living is orchestrated by balancing views with privacy, communal space with intimacy. Rockledge is a place of meditation where one can contemplate the ocean and sky“.
