Although the new house designed by Soler Architecture is much larger than the original, the front of the house was scaled so that it is consistent with the streetspace and blends in with the neighbohood. Large cantilevered roof planes knit the one-story and two-story areas of the home together. Anthracite zinc and bamboo bring a contemporary look to the exterior.

The front door is clad in a snakeskin wall covering, adding texture and personality that complements the crisp white walls and warm wood in the entryway.

In the kitchen, the owner chose a custom glass tile backsplash to add some color into the large space. The shades of green complement the walnut cabinetry and limestone fireplace.

The connection between the home's two levels is bright and open. The home features automated clerestory windows that bring in light and allow cool ocean breezes to naturally flow throughout the space.
