La Vista Residence

This home was heavily damaged by the Jesusita Fire. Wherever possible, existing structural elements and original building materials were salvaged and used in the rebuild. Even adobe bricks hand-made by the owners, during the original construction in the 1950s, were incorporated into the project.


The building sits precariously on the edge of Barger Canyon, within 5′ of the steep canyon slope. This made construction and staging of materials challenging, and required the design team to modify some of the structural and architectural details to maintain the original building footprint.


By keeping the original two-story rotunda design, the original feel and layout of the living room, kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms were preserved. The curved central fireplace and one of a kind wrap around second floor deck with panoramic views of the ocean, mountains, and valley highlight this spectacular home.


This remodel was very much a family affair with three generations involved in the rebuild. We are extremely proud to be involved with this project that will in no doubt, be enjoyed by generations to come.

Architect: Thomas Ochsner Architects
