Renovated to foster indoor/outdoor living, the charming La Jolla home was featured in a Dwell home tour in 2016.

The multifunctional backyard unit boasts sound-insulated walls, making it ideal for movie nights.

Built in the 1940s as a fisherman’s cottage in La Jolla, the residence at 5681 Dolphin Place received a makeover from Architects Magnus. “Because indoor/outdoor living is an integral part of San Diego living, large glass sliding doors completely open the house to the private patio that was hidden in the prior plan layout,” says the firm. 

Now, the rear of the 1,360-square-foot home seamlessly joins its backyard, and a 400-square-foot, detached entertainment “cube” with a rooftop deck offers even more opportunities to lounge under the sun.

During the renovation, the home’s older siding was swapped out for a rainscreen installation to improve moisture control.

Inside, every aspect of the open-plan living area, from the couch to the dining table to the kitchen island, can appreciate sight lines to the backyard.  

The porcelain plank flooring is continuous throughout, with zero-step thresholds at doors and showers.

Kitchen appliances include a SMEG refrigerator, Bertazzoni Range Oven, and Bosch Dishwasher. The counters are honed white quartz, and the pendant over the island is the Cirrus Float by Edge Lighting.
