California-based architectural firm Griffin Enright Architects has designed the Point Dume Residence.

Completed in 2010, the design of this 6,598 square foot home takes advantage of its location at the top of Point Dume in Malibu, California, by providing panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean.

Point Dume Residence by Griffin Enright Architects:

“This project explores the nature of fluidity and sequence in the context of space, circulation, and landscape. The site rests atop one of the highest points in Point Dume, Malibu, and offers stunning panoramas that make the organization of views of paramount concern. The home both captures and is captivated by these views, creating spaces that flow in to one another and in to the landscape. The occupant then becomes immersed in a continuous volume of spectacular views that focus attention both internally towards the architecture itself and externally towards the Pacific Ocean in the distance. The smooth, sinuous surfaces that organize the spaces are then punctured and intersected in such a way as to break down the barriers that visually and psychologically separate the inside from the outdoors.”
