Designed by Los Angeles-based architecture firm Marmol Radziner, this beachfront home is just as exciting at its surrounding landscape. The Altamira Residence is a 15,500-sq.-ft. build including the main house, study, guest house and a garage.
Set on a sprawling 20-acre site along the coastal edge of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, this unusual design fronting the Pacific is clearly inspired by the oceanfront. The undulating roof follows the natural lines of the waves and the local landscape. Interiors too echo the natural environment, featuring materials like wood and stone, and lots of windows, each framing a different but equally amazing view. This interesting curved roof house is probably just as much a draw to the area and the sun and surf.
