CASA 10 offers a remarkable connection with the ocean, nature and design through the simplicity of glass walls and mid-century iconic architecture. A private cul-de-sac home sited on an 18,000 sq ft ocean view lot in the exclusive Scripps Estates neighborhood. Originally designed by Russell Forester in 1957, Architect Heather Johnston reimagined the home into a mid-century modern masterpiece focused on today's lifestyle., CASA 1O showcases the simple accommodation of everyday life with a focus on outdoor living only possible in Southern California. The approachable design of the main house offers an expansive kitchen, open entertaining areas, and large master retreat, while the detached guest house is ideal for an office, media room, or artist's studio.This 1950's mid-century house needed insulation, new electrical, plumbing, siding â everything but new studs and foundations. Architect, Heather Johnston transformed this home and the detached guest house into a showcase of what mid-century design is known for, incorporating design principles that create lifestyle by design. Located in north La Jolla in the Scripps Estate Division... great location to shops, restaurants and freeways all nestled in a gated compound. Exterior grass plantings give the only vertical dimension to the design, waving as the breeze moves them. All else is horizontal: caramelized bamboo siding, porcelain tile, roof line and ocean horizon. This compound in north La Jolla provides a sculptural and uncomplicated lifestyle that allows the design and structural elements of the property to shine.
