Torrance Canyon Residence
LocationSan Diego, CA
Recognition2001 AIASD Design Award
Inspiration from Schindler and Neutra’s Silverlake works combined with a natural canyon site fueled the owner’s desire to create a sophisticated home built on a speculative budget. Hiking up into the canyon’s eucalyptus grove, past the street level garage/guest house, one enters the living/dining/kitchen level. Climbing further upward are two bedrooms sharing a bath. Up another half level, the journey culminates at the master suite.
