From the air, the ridges of five diamond-shaped metal roofs resemble the marquise cut of a fine diamond. The earth-toned metal structures crown the indoor living areas and shelter the outdoor spaces. Designed by renowned local architect, Ken Ronchetti, it’s a consummate design of form and flow. Like a sentry high above the sea at Torrey Pines Beach, the home is sited between dramatic crevasses of white and golden sandstone cliffs. Inside, angular, sculptural spaces of stone and glass echo the hues of the land and sea beyond. Around every corner, beyond every turn is an artful blend of visionary design with nature.
