Envisioned with a sweeping roof plane and organic skylights, this house in Malibu marks the latest residential proposal by Victor B Ortiz Architecture. The design of the coastal dwelling is informed by an existing tree on-site, a natural element which is invited to occupy the built space and grow through the openings of its lightweight rooftop. Thus, the sinuous roof creates the necessary enclosure and shade, while ensuring the interiors are flooded with sunlight that filters through the leafy canopy overhead. As such, the daylight is transformed with delicate patterning to create a dynamic and natural effect.

victor ortiz designs holistic architecture and interiors

 

New York-based architect Victor Ortiz plans the Malibu House as a celebration of its lush, coastal site. The interior spaces are curated to evoke a peaceful atmosphere, opening broadly out toward the sweeping ocean views. A material palette of light-toned wood along with natural stone unifies the home, and can be found throughout the house from the built in casework to furniture pieces that were custom designed by the architect. These bespoke pieces, including chairs and coffee tables, were designed specifically for the Malibu house to achieve a holistic work of architecture and design.
