The Cresta designed by Jonathan Segal FAIA in  La Jolla, San Diego occupies an area of 5,300 sq feet but appears larger than life. The residence features three floors, one below and two above grade. Situated in La Jolla, it was built “entirely out of cast in place concrete”.  The house looks even larger due to the wide expanse of  floor to ceiling glass that replaces some of the walls; that expands and opens the area up, blending the indoors with the outdoor surroundings.

According to the architect:

“The living area extends into a terrace with a swimming pool integrated that ensures thermal cooling adding an element of sustainability to the house. The roof also hosts a 6.5kw solar array that supplies almost the entire power for the home, making it very friendly to the environment.”
