Katayama Residence Hermosa Beach, CA
1996 Design

This colorful and dramatically modern 3,000 square foot home in Hermosa Beach, California, incorporates ocean views and outdoor spaces into a design solution that utilizes six different levels of living space. On this tight, sloping 40’x60’ lot, the garage and an office occupy the ground floor levels along with a small yard and entry court. The bedrooms comprise the middle levels and the upper levels host the kitchen, dining and living room spaces. A rooftop deck with an outdoor fireplace captures views of downtown Hermosa Beach with Catalina Island in the distance.
