Georgia Street Residence by Christian Rice Architects

Designed by Christian Rice Architects, the Georgia Street Residence is located just east of the Hillcrest neighborhood in San Diego, California.

The project involved the renovation of an existing two-story home- that was essentially a stucco box, with a Spanish-style roof “planted” on the front façade. Once the roof structure was removed, the home was a blank canvas of sorts, brimming with potential.

The owner desired a contemporary home, infused with energy, color, and a stronger relationship to the exterior. To accomplish these goals, we incorporated several new indoor-outdoor relationships into the home, including the addition of a glass garage door that opens vertically into a new double-height volume in the entry area.

New steel roof elements projecting out towards the front and side create both a covered front porch and covered outdoor dining area along the side of the home. A new steel balcony structure was added along the rear façade.

A large, new pool was added at the rear as well as a new reflecting pond just off the front porch. A local artist painted the two colorful murals at the perimeter masonry walls to complete the home.
