Conceived by the principal of a well-regarded architectural firm as his personal residence, 940 Temple Hills Drive brilliantly leverages the coastal view site creating a stunning, eminently functional home. An interesting design study in intersecting planes and walls of glass, the street-side of the home barely belies the unique interesting indoor and outdoor spaces behind the entrance. Three stacking 'cubes' create the interior spaces. The lower cube holds living and dining spaces along with guest rooms. The middle and heart of the residence is an understated great room with kitchen open through towering glass to a surprisingly large terraced yard. The upper box is all master suite with sweeping village and coastline views. Throughout the home, simple but elegant design combine with clever functionality. Warm woods and concrete mix to create a welcoming home that invites the outdoors and magnificent views into every room. Brilliantly located, the property sits high enough to grant the sweeping views while just blocks from the best beaches and downtown Laguna Beach. 940 Temple Hills Drive cleverly disguises a wonderfully comfortable home in an architecturally beautiful design statement.
