Indoor/outdoor versatility

It all started with a deck. Jim and Insu Nuzzi wanted more outdoor entertainment space for their Del Mar home, but they weren’t sure how to go about it. Their house, on a deeply sloped lot, didn’t have much room to expand.

The modern, three-story house, with strong geometric angles and curves, is backed against a cliff on one side and has a steep driveway on the other. Perched on a hillside, the home overlooks Torrey Pines State Beach and the Los Peñasquitos Lagoon. It has an entry on the bottom floor, the main living area on the second floor and bedrooms on the third.

“We had a little deck where we could squeeze in about eight people,” said Insu, a nature photographer, who specializes in photographs of birds.

With no set idea in mind, the couple turned to Jackson Design & Remodeling to come up with a plan. The Nuzzis told them they wanted an outdoor grill, exterior space to gather and possibly a bigger kitchen island.
