Designed by Stern McCafferty the renewed and revamped residence accomplishes this by embracing a Cor-Ten steel and glass extension!
Minimal to its core the new interior of is draped in cool neutral hues with white and shades of gray being the dominant colors. Black is used sparingly throughout the house to anchor the interior and to highlight distinct architectural features.
Thanks to the U-shaped structure of the residence the homeowners enjoy complete privacy as they spend time in the courtyard even as the street façade keeps away prying eyes. A separate living area for guests and the master suite are also integrated visually with the rear yard. Warm lighting adds another layer of intrigue to this California home that breaks away from the mundane.
Specially crafted green zones with glass walls enliven various rooms of this wonderful and soothing house allowing the homeowners to escape the rush of a fast-paced urban lifestyle. And it is barely a surprise that life here is more about the outdoors than the luxurious interior!
White is the dominant hue here with the homeowners wanting an uncluttered living environment that is both elegant and urbane. Black cabinets window frames and accents anchor these breezy rooms where color is kept to a bare minimum.
