Design, Engineering + Build
The steep hillsides of Mission Hills lent itself to the modern three story design of the 4,055 square foot single-family Revival Residences. To preserve the lot’s city and bay views, NDD created a three-story cascade that weighs in at just over 4,200 square feet. The multi-level layout may make the residence seem inaccessible to most (in some areas 15 foot high retaining wall were needed), so we have incorporated a nearly silent hydraulic lift elevator to allow for easy access from the first to second floors. One of the most unique aspects of this project is what you will find next door: a mid 1960’s post-war modernist residence by famed local architect Homer Delawie. Wood siding, detailed landscaping, and a natural environmental setting maintain a warm touch to the modern design and add visually to Homer Delawie’s original design next door. What we have with this residence is a homage to one of San Diego’s greatest architects, Homer Delawie, a look towards the future by retaining warmth in a modernist design, and a sense of accessibility that can appeal to diverse market.
