Residential Architecture: Carmel Residence by Dirk Denison Architects: “..The house sits on a dense site facing Carmel Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Our clients were keen to be fully cognizant of this amazing setting in all areas of the home. As such the house was conceived as a central room comprised of the courtyard, living room, and bedroom, bordered by niche spaces for the kitchen, breakfast nook, office and master bath. Fully folding doors/walls adjacent to the courtyard from the living room and bedroom literally open the full space up, and the rhythmic edge of vertical screen elements (solid mahogany and steel) create a loose border that stretches and compresses along its lengths..” Lovely home on a lovely site, extensive glazing, natural light, views, warm wood interiors..
