If there is one unmistakable trend in the world of home design it is structures that are enriched by the landscape that surrounds them even as they brush aside the conventional line between the interior and the world outside.
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.
A stunning central courtyard and pool area become the main social zones of the second level of the house that also contains the living area kitchen dining room pantry terrace and a guest space. It is the first level beneath it that houses both the parents and kids’ bedrooms.
Essentially this is a fusion of contrasting styles eras and architectural principles done in a flowing and seamless fashion. While the exterior of the original home is largely left untouched it is the interior that undergoes a complete makeover.
