Grand Canal

Newport Beach, CA

This charming, traditional beach house is located in the heart of Grand Canal, a canal situated in Balboa Island, Newport Beach. The design and program layout seeks to maximize the outdoor living space and take full advantage of the views and access to the water. The massing of the house juxtaposes the narrow site by breaking the front façade into two sections; this creates depth and hierarchy which is further emphasized by the use of different but complementing materials like white brick , and warm grey wood siding and white siding.
