Marine Lair 4
Modern coastal home with state of the art design and technology

In the affluent seaside neighbourhood of La Jolla, north of San Diego, Matrix Design Studio and luxury home builder Hill Construction Company have built an extreme home, creatively, materially and technologically. The 3200 square foot, 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom home, features a boat-like exterior with Venetian plaster, vertical elements of amazon limestone and titanium bands that wrap the cantilevered terraces.

A skylight in the ceiling, under the pool, illuminates the stairway, which features cantilevered frosted glass treads. A row of wall panels and doors, cloaked in rare Koa wood veneers, conceal closets, lighting controls, a mechanical room and lead to the bedrooms on the second story.


Custom bed and Koa veneered closet doors.

The master bedroom features a hidden flip down TV in the ceiling, retracting window walls and unobstructed ocean views.

Behind the bed, the bath’s glass enclosure uses nanotechnology-dimming glass, that can frost over for privacy at the touch of a button.

Bedroom – terrace unobstructed ocean view

Located in the lower garage level is a large beach bathroom complete with steam shower. A dark hand textured Makrame stone from Italy clads the floor and ceiling of the shower, framing a large and very rare LED backlit Brazilian vintage granite from Minas Gerais, which has large occlusions of clear quartz and carnelian patches of mica and tourmaline.

Magnificent ocean view from the terrace

During the day, light from the curved glass skylight under the pool, dances upon the stairs. At night, the stainless steel stairs and cantilevered backlit glass provide a dramatic sculptural element.
