In beautiful La Jolla, a coastal enclave in sunny San Diego, summer seems to be a year-round phenomenon. So when it comes to a summer dream home, this beautiful shore-side masterpiece by Jonathan Segal Architect should more than fill my daydreams all year long.
The stark geometries of the built space are echoed in the reflecting pool and accompanying modern outdoor chairs and seating.
Three fountain jets are installed within the reflecting pool, should the waves crashing 100 meters to the west fail to produce enough coveted cascading water sound. Sleek outdoor fountains in general can add this escapist touch to most outdoor areas.
Between an expansive sun porch and ceiling-to-floor windows, the separation between indoor and outdoor space is delightfully obscured.

With world class surfing outside the back door, this isn't just a dream home. It's a California-dreaming home.
In lieu of owning such nicely situated property myself, I can daydream about the furniture at least:
Set of 2 Whitworth Chrome Accent Chairs
Zuo Copacabana Modern Gray Outdoor Ottoman
In looking at Segal's exceptional design, it's clear that the key to creating a dream home for summer is creating a home that, like the landscape surrounding it, is wide open, welcoming and fuss-free.

Brent Turner is an architecture, design and art writer who adores elegantly simple distillations of complex design problems. You'll often catch him waxing poetic about how such creative problem solving is not only the essence of a successful art and design practice, but of science, engineering, and well, life in general. A California native, Brent was educated at U.C. San Diego where he was first exposed to clumsy yet endearingly avant-garde institutional art and architecture. In the years since, he has expanded his interest base to include all types of interior, graphic and industrial design. His best personal designs are made with Legos, and it's for this reason that Brent confines his own public creative work to wordsmithing. When he isn't writing, he hosts an art and design podcast called Beer & Tall Buildings.
Brent lives in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles with his cat Buster. If you can't reach him by phone or email, he's most likely on a mountaintop somewhere and promises to call you back as soon as he descends.
