Alta Mura Drive

Originally designed in the 1940s by Cliff May, this Pacific Palisades home retained many of the signature aspects of May’s work – among them the curving walls and the integration of interior and exterior spaces.  The owners wished for those features to remain while adding a second story and performing a respectful renovation in 6,700 square feet of living space.  The existing Spanish style was maintained using Malibu-style tiles and wrought iron.  Overlooking the ocean, terracing helps utilize the hillside space.
