Recognized nationally and internationally for the functional artistry of its exceptional designs, Brion Jeannette Architecture (BJA) of Newport Beach, CA, has created world-famous private homes and estates, such as the daringly contemporary Portabello (Corona del Mar) and the serenely organic Rock House (Laguna Beach). At BJA, fine art sensibilities rule: Design concepts are hand-drawn, and computers are used afterward only as drafting tools. For new homes, the environment is an intrinsic design partner as BJA analyzes sunlight, shade, cross-ventilation, and landscaping as passive-sustainable energy resources, a core philosophy since the firm was founded in 1974.
