Fabulous coastal views at CORMAC Residence, California


California-based architectural practice Laidlaw Schultz Architects have designed the CORMAC Residence project. Completed in 2012, the luxury property can be found in Corona del Mar, California, US.

According to the architects: “With a passion for contemporary architecture and an  understanding of international design, the owners approached the firm seeking something unique for their growing family. The home is located on a quiet street setting that gives no indication of the fabulous coastal views accessible from indoors, and this feeling of revelation becomes the starting point for the architectural design. A simple line separating public from private, the first move about which the house begins, starts the dialogue. This wall is punctuated with a sliding panel and is then drawn up to reveal the striated walnut garage door that continues the plane. The woven-steel panel is the gateway to the interior courtyard and private dominion.

“The luxury Californian house itself takes advantage of these two exterior spaces, interior courtyard and exterior view, with a wrapper of sliding doors that, when open, turn the house into an outdoor pavilion. A juxtaposition of lacquered cabinetry set against painted brick walls, and aged wood floors in contrast to stark white walls further emphasise the balance of sophistication and style that make up the interior design of the property.”
