Text description provided by the architects. Light, simplicity and materiality were the guiding design elements for this modest 3,000 square foot residence for a young couple and their newborn child. Respectful to a neighborhood mainly consisting of Spanish-styled homes from the 1940s, scale and mass were kept comparable.

Materials traditionally used in Spanish houses were incorporated - all but with a modern twist; a straightforward composition of stucco, concrete and wood produced both a contemporary and warm respite in this urban setting. The house incorporates a pool, strategic landscaping and a private entry sequence to maximize exterior space on the 6,000 sf lot.

A “series of choreographed experiences” create an urban oasis in the midst of Beverly Hills on this tight site. The interior design showcases minimal materials and timeless furniture pieces along with a growing modern art collection including a series of Los Angeles architectural photography. Myriad bespoke elements throughout the house recall the powerful simplicity of Japanese architecture, providing moments for reflection and aesthetic display.
