The Bold roof profile of Avocado Acres (Aa) House personifies the design collaboration with Architect, Lloyd Russell to inject a dose of creativity + Mod Green Architecture into a coastal infill project. Aesthetic cues originated from the historical LA’s Case Study Houses and Eichler’s MCM gems. However, this new California coastal home is all about addressing the conditions we face now by incorporating sustainable materials, energy efficiencies and environmental sensibilities.

California Coastal Home with an Original and Bold Curvilinear Roof 1

A sloping curved shed roof unifies the three pavilions that define the U-shape plan and courtyard space. Throughout the interior a constant engagement to the outdoors gives the home a grandeur that belies the home’s small footprint. It ‘s single level living spaces, privacy from the street and functional layout for the inhabitants is the soul of our design strategy.

Straight lines with an angular street front geometry sits in stark contrast to the unique curvilinear roof profile. A simple color palette of the open interior space complements the muscular concrete walls and extensive use of natural wood tones on the vaulted ceiling, flooring and cabinetry. Floor plan consists of three defined areas joined in a U shape where each volume programs directly to the outdoor courtyard. 9′ tall sliding glass walls vanish into wall pockets and clerestory glazing that entirely wraps above the main living space provides plenty of natural light.
