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.

Suddenly we had created a dense, heavy, monolithic cover roof that needed to be subverted, giving an idea of levitating mass that is slightly lying on light wood and glass.
