Sea Ranch Images always have a wonderful time photographing Empire Contracting’s projects.  The quality is always exceptional, the architecture interesting and innovative, and the interior design impressive. Beautiful homes result in beautiful photographs and this home did not disappoint.

Architect Malcolm Davis, of MDa, was in charge of exterior design, and did a superb job in creating a number of outdoor spaces, which are very private, yet afford stunning views of the ocean. A central part of the design from the outset was a roof view deck. Careful planning and modeling resulted in a louvered catwalk and stair system, so that one can ascend to the view deck, looking at the ocean all the while, yet completely screened from the neighbors. The main courtyard area features a series of large shutters, that can be pinned in place to provide views to the bluff and ocean beyond, or closed for complete privacy.

Jeni Gamble and Murray Agnew, of gamble + design, handled interior design and lighting. Their exacting design elements can be seen throughout the home, and presented a number of welcome challenges for us throughout construction. Some of our favorite interior features of the home are the walnut and tile floors, walnut cabinetry by Jackson Hantzche and Henrybuilt (including a stunning master bed unit, and an innovative master vanity and mirror assembly), Heath Tile by Nathan Hake at the fireplace and kitchen wall, and eye catching lighting fixtures at every turn.
