The Cardiff homeowners set out to build a custom home that blended both East and West coast architectural styles in homage to both their backgrounds. Nestled in Southern California the couple sought out a home that took advantage of the ocean views with a design that allowed for an “outdoor living space for the kids and two Labrador retrievers”.


Principal, Trace Wilson of Materia combined “traditional Northeast sensibility with California Craftsman and modernity to create a place that’s really an open, airy environment.” During the Summer, the family of four spends about 80 percent of their time outdoors. With that in mind, the main great room stretches across the kitchen, dining and living rooms featuring multiple LaCantina Folding Door Systems that open to the backyard.


The architect chose to add custom SDLs to our contemporary folding door panels in order to stay true to the Nantucket meets California style the homeowners had envisioned. Looking out from LaCantina’s folding systems, the indoors transition out to an expansive patio with blue-stone pavers to a pool with an infinity edge all the way around for the ultimate outdoor escape.
