Arch Beach Heights

At the end of one of our office open house parties, a woman walked into my office and said, " I am either going to remodel my entire house, or I am getting a divorce". The woman and her husband, now our friends, hired us to update the design of their interior and exterior of their 1940's beach cottage to sleek, yet warm, modern beach cottage. Construction will begin in the summer of 2023. Please see 'Residential Architecture' for exterior updates.

Located in the Mystic Hills area of Laguna Beach, CA, the owners had lived in their home for 20 years and wanted to redo their interior. An understated, yet colorful palate was wanted. A hidden kitchen was created and featured blue backlit decorative glass and gold leafing.

We supervised the interior construction and choose all the materials and finishes

and most of the furnishings.

This Laguna Beach soft contemporary cottage interiors project was for a recent widow who always wanted a home in soft yellow and salmon colors. She had a martini glass collection and a giraffe collection. The giraffe collection became the focus of a safari themed guest room. Phillipe Horvath, Inc., created the interiors, including furniture and fabrics, as well as portions of the exterior front and entertainment areas.


Nyes Place

This ultra contemporary home was a

'down to the frame remodel'. Phillipe Horvath, Inc., was hired to design the interior, observe construction and help select exterior materials. Architect David Parker originally designed this home. A feature of this home includes a 35 foot high, 8 foot wide, octagonal spiral staircase that has a view to the ocean. The owner liked angles, so we created an understated use of angles both in plan and in elevation.

Our client's desire was a contemporary home design with a wink to mid-century modern. The owner's have a keen eye for design and detail. Together, we created a unique blend of architecture and interiors. This home is located in Huntington Harbor, on the water, where the main level deck cantilevers over the sea wall. as a wink to 1960's design, we used teak wood  on the cabinets, wall panels, stair treads and interior doors. Construction was completed in late 2022 and furnishings and art are being selected now. Please 'Residential Architecture' for exterior design images.

Located near Swami's Beach, Encinitas, is this large soft contemporary beach home. Our client wanted to  change her master bedroom to a design which suited

her new design taste. We used mostly Christopher Guy furniture and fabrics to compliment the client's sculpture collection, as well as, some of her original furnishings. Photos show a gold leafed wall. Also, we hand tinted the floor tile to match the original tile.

Casa de Luz

The owners of this vacation home wanted their interest in the poems of the Sufi poet, Rumi to be reflected in their home. An ancient prayer was cast into the curved, tinted, poured in place concrete interior walls. The kitchen and sofa area are flush with the marble floor. The kitchen appliances are mostly hidden from view. Gold leaf was used on the fascias of the round ceiling soffits. See 'Residential Architecture' section for exterior images.
