She sought to enjoy, throughout the seasons, the seclusion and connection with nature offered by her large forested property in the eastern foothills of the Cascades. The modest project included one bedroom, a guest suite for friends and family, and a garage that could be adaptable for use as a studio/workspace.

Rockefeller-Thue-02


Rockefeller Partners created this modern beach 4,500 Square feet house on the Strand in Manhattan Beach.

This particular client has never lived more than a few blocks away from the beach. His love of Balinese architecture challenged Rockefeller Partners to create a modern, Californian interpretation.


The three-story home places the public spaces on the highest floor, affording them the best views.

Private spaces are placed on the middle floor, and the Ground floor houses the beach room and family room that is accessible to the walkway street, just steps away from the beach.
