Beach House Beauty

Gallo Residence

An existing Laguna Beach cottage was in desperate need of repair. Luckily, the owner saw a diamond in the rough and helped to bring back to the old home it’s past magic and glory. A 2,000 square foot addition adds bedrooms and play areas for the children and compliments the home’s original character by keeping the forms and scale small and appropriate. A glistening pool finishes the scene, ready for a lazy Sunday afternoon.


Multi-fold doors push back to reveal the pool cabana,  creating the ultimate indoor/outdoor living area.


A warm fire offers a cozy respite from the cool evening breeze blowing in off the coast.

It is our opinion that Anders Lasater, Architects are among the top most creative architects we have worked with. Anders has a tremendous knowledge of building and transforms complex scenarios into straightforward workable plans. His response to in-field questions and revisions is immediate.

    Kieth, Homeowner

The original wood floors, fireplace and open beam ceiling of this 1920s vintage cottage were thoughtfully restored to become the focal point of the main living space.
