This contemporary beach house is located on a narrow beachfront lot in Malibu, California. A garden separates the main dwelling from a guesthouse. Lighting accentuates the architectural elements at night and provides multiple lighting scenes. The lighting system allows residents to choose among activities, including entertaining or spending a quiet evening together, and suitably light the event.

Recessed, trimless fixtures and cove lighting are integrated into the architectural elements and used to draw attention to the building form rather than the lighting itself. Accent lighting highlights the hard natural finishes, furniture, and artwork throughout the house. Natural bronze fixtures suitable for the marine environment illuminate the soft landscape elements in the garden.
