San Diego, California

Creative planning that lets the land breathe

DMB works to preserve what nature made. Now and then, we also find ways to improve on the original. One such example is Santaluz in San Diego. Initially, the land was an unbroken sea of grass. To enhance the landscape, DMB planted native trees while retaining the land’s great open spaces, giving the community and its residents room to breathe.

Architecture inspired by storied places

The warm Mediterranean look of Santaluz was inspired by country homes in Andalusia, Provence and Tuscany, which share the hilly topography and climate of coastal California.

Indoor/outdoor living in northern San Diego

Beloved California neighborhoods like Del Mar and La Jolla, with their quaint shops and cozy beachside restaurants, served as inspiration for the style of Santaluz.

Santaluz Residential

Taking a different view

Santaluz embodies innovative design. In this high-density area in coastal California, we built a low-density community. Only 850 units were designated for its 3,800 acres. The resulting community sits as lightly as possible on the land. To take full advantage of its setting, select homesites were situated atop a hill, overlooking spectacular views of the golf course and ocean.

The Santaluz Club & Spa

A golf course that follows nature’s path

The Rees Jones golf course flows serenely through the rolling hills of Santaluz. Framed by the native landscape, the course seems to follow the terrain effortlessly, a word that describes every aspect of life here. That includes the welcoming warmth of the Santaluz Clubhouse and Spa, reminiscent of a Spanish ranch house.
