Gustafson-Moore Residence
Laguna Beach, CA

A three level 3,300 square foot single family residence.

The house is constructed on the site of a recent landslide. 

Since the structure is founded on a recent landslide, special sub-grade preparations were specified for the construction of the foundations and lower level slab systems. The residence is primarily a wood framed structure.  Small steel frames were used to create the large windows that span the entire width of the south side of the upper level.  The concrete fireplace was used has a structural element for both vertical and lateral support of the upper level.  Structural Composite Lumber was used for the large spans and cantilevered areas in the upper level to create the floating appearance above the fireplace.
