Southbay Home, Volume 1 features the Dieser Residence, built by Zigrang Construction.

'This is a stunning, contemporary home designed by Patrick Killen and tucked in a tight lot in Hermosa Beach. The home has three bedrooms, four baths, a media room, a "quiet" zen outdoor space, a roof deck, glass staircases, two story window walls and an observation "diving board" deck that cantilevers 32 feet out of the building.

Floor areas are covered in terrazzo and tile. Multi-slide doors open wide to bring in the ocean breezes. The building ascends over five levels, from the alley below up to Manhattan Avenue.

One of the biggest challenges was to excavate 40 feet and then construct this home without disturbing the 80-year-old homes that are on each side. Nether home moved an inch during the process.'
