This is one of our all-time favorite projects. The client was inspired by Michael Webb’s book, Brave New Houses – Adventures in Southern California. The book features homes that express the wants and desires of inspired individuals who decided to please themselves first, defy conventional wisdom, and collaborate with talented architects and gifted contractors.
The project speaks to the present with soaring volumes flooded with light.
The large open floor plan, coupled with numerous punched openings of fixed glass—and large expanses of movable glass—flood the rooms with an abundance of natural light.
The openness extends to the natural environment, creating an effortless relationship between the indoors and outdoors. It’s as though every room has a private landscaped courtyard.
A soaking/cocktail pool with an oversized baja-shelf allows for ultimate relaxation at comfortable temperatures.
The master bath’s neutral palette and design soothes the mind and body while relaxing the soul. The tub’s laminar-flow fill-faucet was placed in the ceiling of the master bath.
