This elegant, contemporary oceanfront villa is the result of artful, clever, and ingenious design that provides two functional dwellings. The Beach Villa is one of three custom homes that RPP Architects designed on Bluff Place in Long Beach, California.
Inspiration for the Beach Villa came from Mediterranean architecture, where light color stucco and generous tile work are paramount. However, large window openings allowing ocean and peninsula panoramic views are a modern and technologically advanced feature of this twenty-first century villa.
Even with very limited square footage and a structure housing two separate units, the sculptured form allows for decks and openings for direct exposure to the ocean breeze.
In this project, RPP Architects acted as the planning liaison, coordinated Coastal and Zoning permits, and processed the Building plans until a Building Permit was issued.
