A Farmhouse By The Sea

Anders Lasater Architects as Architects

It's hard to imagine now, but this light filled, contemporary California farm house was once a tired and worn 1950s rancher lacking any of the style that made the 1950s cool and hip.  Instead, it was dark and dreary, and had no space for a growing family to make a home.


So, working closely with the owners, we set out to create a luminous collection of thoughtfully organized volumes that form a backdrop for their daily family life, while embracing the sunlight and view beyond.


Open, luminous, and organized for easy living, the home embraces family and guest alike, offering a variety of spatial moments and that make for a rich living experience.


Intimate moments are found within and without the house where a smaller, more personal scale is celebrated. The sitting area in the great room, and the steps of the entry courtyard are just a few of these special moments that bring detail and texture within reach of the family.


Giving the house some height is always a challenge in Laguna, but we were able to work within the code restrictions and make it feel like a new home, while protecting neighbors views.


The results speak for themselves, and the owners couldn't be more pleased. We are too!


Anders created exactly what we were looking for, he transformed the entire house into an ideal living space for our family -- we love the way it all turned out!

-Veronica, Homeowner
