Ocean View Hill Street Residence for Mr. Thien Ta
Nested high above the Pacific, this California hillside courtyard home overlooks the ocean coast from Newport Beach to the Palos Verdes peninsula. The residence has approximately 4,600 Sq. Ft., divided between 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, a library, office, and a 3 car garage with a motor court.
The designer, Bozena Jaworski, maximized the project potential and succeeded, despite strict view protection restrictions. With a design respectful of the adjacent homes’ ocean views, carefully crafted roof lines and sensitively designed massing create an exiting spatial composition, with an aesthetically pleasing streetscape.
The side entry courtyard elevated bridge crossing over the moat-like area invite guests through a broad archway to the ornate wrought iron entrance. The second floor main entry tower links a private master suite entry vestibule, the living room, and casual living areas with a gallery hall. All of the spaces on the top level are open to the shaded wraparound balconies and expansive terrace with panoramic vistas. The curved staircase leads down to the lower level sleeping quarters and family entertainment center, extended visually into the landscaped courtyard. The master suite turret allows for interrupted 270 degrees coastal view.
