La Jolla Home
San Diego, California
While working at Hoerr Schaudt, Paul had the privilege of collaborating on this private home and main residence for a wonderful family.
He worked with a local team of architects and interior designers for a coordinated complete site transformation, including the addition of terraced garden rooms with pergolas and fire places, a fountain, a lap pool, and new casita in the 1920s mission revival style (of which the existing main residence is a true historic example).
The resulting project is a finely-detailed jewel-box garden, strung around a tight lot, covering over ten feet of vertical grade change. The intimate spaces are tuned for specific outdoor activities: dining, studying (two teenagers in the house during construction), swimming, grilling, lounging, and growing veggies.
Paul was the daily contact for a highly-engaged client, responsible for proposing, illustrating, and communicating design solutions in collaboration with Doug Hoerr, Steve Gierke, and others at Hoerr Schaudt.
