Art and architecture blend seamlessly in this contemporary Laguna Beach home in the private community of Irvine Cove. A heavily detailed three-quarter-inch layer of French limestone encloses the steel-framed structure, creating the illusion that it's one, monolithic column of limestone. On both sides of the main entry, curved glass panels are accented with rivets. A bridge leading from the entrance to the great room crosses over the atrium. Inside the gallery-styled great room, an art wall features a sculptured circular black brick fireplace with stainless steel trim.
