Sunset Hill Residence by Robin Chell Design

Sunset Hill Residence by Robin Chell Design
Description from Robin Chell Design :
Built on a hillside overlooking Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, this new 2500-square foot home features expansive windows and a combination of warm, durable materials, including concrete flooring and natural cedar siding. The interior scheme focused on a modern, neutral palette while expressing the architecture and maximizing light throughout the home. A separate office for the client was created in the lower floor, introducing a true live-work use into this neighborhood. A central “lantern” comprised of an open stairway and three-story light well was designed as the visual and functional focal point for the home.
Robin Chell Design also coordinated and specified exterior materials, color palette and building massing with the architects.

Architect: Studio Ectypos (Lucia Pirzio-Biroli and Michele Marquardi)

Ridgewood Residence Design by Assembledge+, Takes Full Advantage of Southern California Climate

December 16, 2013 By: archinhome Category: contemporary house design

Designed by Assembledge+, Ridgewood Residence Located in the Larchmont area of Los Angeles.
Description from Architects :
This 2400 sq ft house takes full advantage of the Southern California climate with a series of areas that exploit the luxury of indoor/outdoor-living. The glass-cornered living room provides a viewing platform, which makes the experience of the space feel as though the occupant is outside. The full-length front porch is reminiscent of the surrounding neighborhood craftsman homes. The cedar siding, smooth white plaster, and-colored MDO panels provide a material palette to complement the refined forms and crisp geometries. The full height sliding glass wall at the rear yard allows the house to be completely opened up providing little distinction between indoor and outdoor.
Please visit Assembledge+ site for further detail about this Ridgewood Residence.
