The website that provides us contemporary homes from around the world is featuring one right in our backyard – on the corner of Prospect and Exchange as you drive into downtown La Jolla.
This 7,200 square-foot lot was an abandoned brown-field site, vacant since 1992. The architect/owner used the space to build a private, urban residence for his family with an on-site architecture studio.
The main living area is surrounded by a reflecting pool on one side and a glass floor on the other. Below grade, where the office and recreation facilities reside, the glass floor/ceiling liberates the space and allows ample natural light.
