Santa Cruz Surf House

This 2,100 sq. ft. two story beach house is located in Santa Cruz and was specially designed for its surf-loving owners. Inspired by the boardwalk, the home includes large windows and vaulted exposed-beam ceilings that have been painted white to help fill the living space with natural light. Inside, the beach-inspired theme can be seen in the weathered oak floors and painted re-sawn wall finish.

The two floors are connected by a staircase made from a custom combination of stainless steel and weathered corten steel, and the upper floor includes a special deck with an ocean view. The property includes a detached shack that doubles as both a surfboard storage space and an art studio. Outside, the property features a courtyard complete with a fire pit and Ipe decking.
