The Avocado Acres House, designed in collaboration with architect Lloyd Russell and Surfside Projects, takes its inspiration from some of L.A.’s most famous modernist architecture, including the Case Study Houses. As well as the modernist influence, the house in Encinitas, California also aims to address some of the conditions we face in 2017, including energy efficiency, environmental concerns, and using sustainable materials. The house sits on a coastal infill lot and is made up of three pavilions, joined together by a sloping shed roof that curves around an outdoor courtyard space. Inside, the house features natural wood and bare concrete walls with full-length glass doors that open the living space out into the courtyard.
