San Diego Juxtaposed against the jagged, ancient edges of the sandstone cliffs of Torrey Pines Reserve in La Jolla is a residence that is an unparalleled masterpiece of shadow, light and angles. Renowned San Diego-based architect Wallace Cunningham’s approach to the site, once considered unbuildable, was to create a light-filled residence that honors the contours of the land. The multilevel, white concrete and stainless steel structure opens to the sky with floor-to-ceiling walls of glass. An infinity-edged pool merges with the sea beyond as the sun sets into the horizon.
