Enhancing The Feeling Of Space: The Cresta Residence Designed By Jonathan Segal FAIA
There are those who say that “Less is more” and then, there are those who express their dissatisfaction and state that “Less is never more—less is obviously less. Who wants less?”
The Cresta is an exceptional private task designed by Jonathan Segal FAIA in San Diego, in the Lower Hermosa locale of La Jolla, California, that improves the feeling of space. Impressive and to a great degree rich, the residence involves a range of 5,300 sq feet. The house looks significantly more reached out than it as of now is, because of the floor to roof glass that replaces a portion of the dividers and gives the place a chance to breathe. The Cresta is something other than any standard generally spread home, it’s the designer’s fantasy house. It highlights three stories, one beneath and two above review. The whole living space is portrayed by transparence and windiness. The limits between the indoor and the outdoor vanish.
Most of the inhabitable space encompasses a room that totally communicates with the environment (named from a very obvious reason, the exterior room). “The exterior room was a key element in creating a home that otherwise would have felt small feel larger and more private that it is. While this space creates a void the buildings overall form is kept intact. All four corners remain with walls and roof planes to define the original box of the residence.” Despite being such a complex project, the interior is simply decorated. Quite an impressive and inspired balanced composition, don’t you think?
