Have your home and eat your avocado toast, too

The avocado has begun to represent everything new and young in the 21st century, becoming a hot topic of debate on everything from health trends to financial planning. And the newest company to embrace this fleshy fruit trend is real estate developer Surfside Projects, with its Avocado Acres House…

Everything but the pit

After teaming up with architect Lloyd Russell, Surfside Projects started looking for a new project in which they could combine both creativity and environmental sensibility, and thus the Avocado Acres House was born. Inspired by LA’s Case Study Houses, the angular Encinitas, California, home is made up of three pavilions set in a U shape and connected by a curvilinear roof. With a focus on sustainable materials and energy efficiencies, the structure of the home is made of concrete slabs, with natural wood and full-length glass doors adorning the inside — inviting natural light into every corner and blurring the line between indoor and outdoor space. Built on an infill lot, the Avocado home has turned environmental-conscious real estate development into something new, trendy, aesthetically pleasing. And although the BMW 2002 parked in the drive fits well with the design of the home, we’re not quite sure where it falls on the ‘green’ factor…
