Don’t Miss the San Diego Modern Home Tour!

Art and architecture lovers, here’s an event you won’t want to miss. We are proud to announce that Casabrava in La Jolla was selected as one of eight featured homes in this year’s San Diego’s Modern Home Tour! Here are some of the homes you’ll have the pleasure of visiting in the tour:

Casabrava, La Jolla (Our own listings, known as Casabrava)

A compelling story about combining the precision and speed of factory building with the unique features of a custom designed house with an award-winning architect, Casabrava was built concurrently in two different locations. Casabrava was ready for move-in just four months after the modules were delivered, halving the elapsed construction time compared to traditional building practices. This streamlined process exemplifies an advanced concept in home design that sets a precedent for creating customized, yet environmentally responsible, residences for years to come. The most satisfying part is hearing ‘You’re kidding, this is modular?’ from visitors to the house.

Casa Diagonal, La Jolla

Perched on a steep hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Casa Diagonal consolidates all of its main living spaces into one level, creating a simple, restrained design. The width of the lot is perpendicular to the view, enabling the house to be oriented towards the ocean. Its difficult hillside placement is utilized to its advantage by carefully stepping down the hillside to create indoor/outdoor terraces on each level with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean.

Presidio Park, Old Town

Designed to maximize sweeping views of the San Diego Bay while responding to the steep canyon on which it is located, this house features a 35’ long light-filled atrium that connects all three levels of the house. In addition, a guest house, pool house and gazebo cascade down the steep project site.

Shayan House, Mission Hills

An engineering challenge because of its dramatically sloped canyon lot, the home utilizes a partially subterranean design NDD devised to avoid employing costly and more limiting traditional stilt construction techniques. The design allowed NDD to more affordably construct the home on a property that had sat for over 20 years because many considered it “unbuildable.”

Union 4, San Diego

Innovative Union 4 in San Diego’s Bankers Hill neighborhood is designed to be green, virtually non-reliant upon public energy sources, respectful of an historic setting and appealing to all three generations of their family. On a small lot fronted by the George W. Osborne house, built in 1888 by an early player in the local development industry, Union 4 is a thoroughly contemporary, three-unit addition that takes full advantage of a dramatic hillside location with sweeping views that race down San Diego Bay to the open ocean.

North County

At a gracious 3,000 square feet, the home encompasses 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, a family room, and a sprawling Great Room. Many surprising features, which cannot be anticipated from outside, include an indoor atrium, a sunken family room and a strong, all-stone “spine wall” that runs the length of the home. The L shape puts spaces where the family wants them, so that the family room and bedrooms occupy one wing, placing the guest suite and entertainment area in the other.

Sofia Lofts, Golden Hill

Sofia Lofts introduces historic Golden Hill to a sharply contemporary, distinctively community-oriented approach to urban living. Appealing Mid-Century Modern design and forward-looking sustainability features (including on-site electric vehicle chargers and an innovative bike-sharing program) underline how Sofia Lofts deliberately creates an environment meant to foster both multi-generational living and an “age in place” concept intended to allow residents to move to larger and smaller units with a range of amenities over the decades, as their needs require.

Del Mar

Airstream trailers and Quonset huts inspired the design for this house docked against a gentle slope near San Diego. The design pits hard-edged industrial materials — concrete block, galvanized siding, steel columns, stainless steel cable and welded I-beams — against softer residential elements, such as stained-wood siding and a grid of exposed wood framing that supports the roof. Replete with custom details such as copper bar stock and found objects inlayed into the polished concrete floors, stainless steel kitchen hood that resonates with the curved roof of the house, custom made concrete countertops and walls.
