contemporary home he designed for his family in Manhattan Beach. While ascending a series of Mangaris wood steps, one walks alongside a river of water flowing over riverbed stones that lead to the entrance of the home. Inspiration from the islands is apparent throughout his design, as this home would be just as comfortable in Maui as it is in Manhattan Beach. The entire three-story structure is comprised of stained and polished Mangaris wood, and the immediate impression is that the visitor has just arrived at an island resort. It is well poised to take advantage of coastal breezes from all direction. Please visit Steve Lazar’s site for more design and information.
