Single family residence
A guest house of 500 square feet replacing one of similar size destroyed by the Malibu fire.
Adjacent to an existing primary residence, a hip roofed stucco box, on a 20 acre site overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Symmetry and asymmetry.
Kinship: the existing house; the destroyed house; the new house.
Continuity and discontinuity -- inside versus outside.
First level: big space small space; social/solitary.
Second floor: bath, seats.
Curved roof wall: corrugated steel. Then, plaster, wood, dry wall.
Essentially an introverted building on an extroverted site.
House: to look in.
Roof deck: to look out (and in).
