Describe the featured project.

To take advantage of its proximity to the ocean in South Redondo Beach, we designed this beautiful, four-story Spanish Colonial-style home to enjoy views of the water from the several balconies built along the back. With wonderful arches—referring to its traditional inspiration—running throughout the exterior and interior of this 6,200-square-foot house, it maximizes the lofty living spaces within.

Several of those living spaces stand as a great testament to Spanish style, such as the open kitchen, with its spacious granite top island and wood floor breakfast nook, and the custom iron handrails and gates surrounding the main staircase and second floor enclaves. Even the custom movie theater room has a sumptuous air to it.

Adding to this is the spacious rear yard loggia, complete with a precast stone fire-place. Also in the rear yard is a complete outdoor barbecue kitchen, adjacent to a seating area that features its own fire pit, which is perfect for entertaining family and friends on those warm South Bay days and nights. Throw in the large swimming pool and spa, and you are all set with an exquisitely custom-designed home that meets all of your Southern California living needs.

What was your inspiration for this house?

C&C Partners president, Patrick Cunningham, was and has always been inspired by the works and designs of architect Addison Mizner. Mizner, who lived between 1872 and 1933,
was an American resort architect whose Mediterranean and Spanish Colonial Revival style interpretations left an indelible stamp on South Florida, and in particular Boca Raton.
His use of loggias, colonnades, arches, grand staircases and decorative ironwork can all be seen in this modern South Bay design by Patrick Cunningham.

How was your vision completed?

The beauty of the way C&C Partners operates is in its inherent teamwork. The firm was started by Patrick Cunningham and his brother, Michael Cunningham, in 1987. Patrick leads a team on the design side of each project, and Michael then takes over on the construction side, working with an extremely talented and experienced group of building professionals. This makes for a virtually perfect handoff from design to completion of the project.

All of this is achieved through C&C Partners’ innovative, 15-step design/build process. We pull together different team members who can add valuable input at various stages of the project. This results in a design that meets our clients’ needs and desires, as well as ensuring that it is extremely well-planned and cost-effective. This award-winning approach is another reason why C&C Partners continues to be the preferred design and construction firm in Los Angeles’ most established and exclusive neighborhoods—but especially in the South Bay.
