De La Luz
"In the Light"
A remodeled 50's beach shack, perched on the bluffs of Santa Barbara., overlooking the Channel islands. The concept was to be authentic and true to the natural world outside and not "over design" the interior. It had to use "live" materials and show the hands of real craftsmen.
After failing at surfaces and finishes that tried to "look" real we shifted directions and went to the authentic materials that gave us the solution.
There is no experience finer than a willing, creative client and a designer willing to roll up his sleeves in a collaborative effort to enhance a living space. Both lives were improved and the community gained.
