Camden is a newly completed, custom single-family residence in the Cameo Shores neighborhood of Corona Del Mar. Due to strict height regulations in the area, this home is one level with a daylight basement. Camden sits on a irregularly shaped corner lot, which helped create the inspiration for the home’s layout. The spaces of the home are laid out in a ‘C’ formation around the outdoor entertainment spaces and views, which are centrally located.

The entry and pool alignment was placed an axis with the Newport Beach harbor entrance and sunset views. On the lower level, exposed concrete walls frame the wine room and lounge that sit directly below the pool above, which tie into the concrete podium. A large skylight was integrated into the bottom of the pool to helps illuminate the lounge below. This is a six-bedroom home with approximately 10,000 sf of living space.

From the Judges
This home is sited perfectly on a tough site and is oriented to and takes advantage of the views on multiple levels and in multiple contexts. Interior finishes look curated and nautral elements add a warmth to the home—resulting in an overall very cool home.
