Avocado Acres House

The curvilinear roof of this Eichler-inspired home is an impressive shape. Stretching in a sloping fashion across this bungalow house, the curve creates a stunning contrast against the striking California skies. This is the Avocado Acres House in Encinitas.

The house is designed to have a constant engagement to the outdoors. Built on a single level, a traditional rectangular floor plan is re-configured as a U-shape, with a garden in the central part of the design. It gives the house a greater sense of privacy from the exterior, while interiors provide the occupants a greater connection and flow to the garden.

Energy efficiency is at the heart of the project’s design, with a Californian Green Home certificate to assure its environmental sensibilities.

From the front of the house, the straight lines and sloped roof are angular compared to the smooth curves in the center.

From above, it looks like someone has taken a bite out of the roof.

The two car garage at the front of the house is a rectangle materialized in dark wood, its shape mimicked by the concrete walls balancing the front exterior. It offers an image of stability, a good foundation to start the home tour.

Inside we are greeted with a warmer touch. Modernist style homes are abundant in California, thanks to the development of Joseph Eichler and his “California Modern” style. Those typical features like the glass walls with open floor plans, a sloping frame roof, and immaculate geometric shapes can also be seen in this 258 sq meter home by architect Lloyd Russell.

 

Another important influence to note was the Case Study Houses built between the 1940s to 1960s. Iconic houses were commissioned to architects, including Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen and A. Quincy Jones. The constructed houses were build mostly in the Los Angeles area.

A laid-back vibe is built with the natural wood material around the house, furniture is low slung and sliding glass doors provide plenty of natural light.

Statement geometric and teal tiles are the fun patterns that give this bathroom its energy, while the rest of the room maintains clean lines.

Surfside Projects was behind the cool surf chic vibes, which really show in this living room. Only a few blocks from the beach, the house is a perfect dream for those who want to make the most of this sunny coastal town outside San Diego. Boards and beach-themed pieces of art hang on the polished concrete walls. Despite concrete seeming harsh, it is offset by the many warming wooden elements; in furniture, and the bold ceiling.

Clerestory windows allow plenty of light, above eye level to provide privacy from nosy neighbors.

Seamless transition between dining room and outdoor decking encourages you to sit outside, uniting the areas.

The previous structure that stood on the plot was deconstructed, taking apart materials to be re-used. Wood and concrete; whatever could be recycled.

Don’t you find that the curve of the roof is so different to the initial view of the front door. Sharp geometric lines have given way to this warm and encompassing curve. The recyclable metal reflects the heat keeping the house cooler in those California summers.

Sustainability addressed, with its recycled materials and Green Point certification, the house also focuses on durability. With cues from Eichler structures, it plays on the celebrated designs of longstanding Modernist architecture.
