Cornish Residence

Cornish Drive Residence

"Inspired by the white cube aesthetic of New York City’s contemporary galleries, this home exhibits the form of Avant Garde architecture at its best. The aesthetic was introduced to minimize distractions for art, emphasizing color and light. Where the white walls framed the bare abstract canvases, this home is designed to frame you. It adapts to your unique style rather than you adapting to the home."

Nestled next to the Self Realization fields with panoramic ocean views, the location is second to none with easy access to the legendary Swami’s surf break and park.  Living here will feel like waking up every day in a work of art with innovative concepts and cutting-edge materials throughout. Revel in exquisite sunsets and views from your outdoor living pavilion or pool with complete privacy - no car can ever drive by your home. And all this is just a short walk to all the best North County spots. Just steps from legendary Swami’s surf break and park and many other beautiful beaches. Walking distance to the downtown Encinitas dining and retail district. Located in the award winning “Cardiff” School District

The house layout was centered in three main aspects: 1) take advantage of the ocean views and location, 2) create the best possible indoor/outdoor relationship and 3) overall create a home that emphasizes the resort living experience.
