The 2,500-square-foot house has an open-plan living, dining, and kitchen area. Criss Cross Ball pendant lamps by George Nelson cover the ceiling. The kitchen features Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances and a backsplash of Heath tile.
De Jong & Co. designed the great room, as well as the dining chairs and table. The sofa, chairs, day bed, and coffee table in the living space are by Lawson-Fenning.
The interior palette is simple, with concrete floors and plaster ceilings. The fireplace, made of stacked Roman brick, is another design move commonly seen in midcentury houses.
A 40-foot wall of sliding doors exposes the great room to the courtyard. The master bedroom also opens up to the outdoor space. The yard uses pervious paving and drought-tolerant plant species to reduce runoff and save water.
The cedar shingles on the exterior will naturally weather and change color from the ocean air.
