Location: Beverly Hills, California, US
ARCHITECTS: Marmol Radziner Architects
Perched on 2.8 acres of steep hillside, this residence is defined by a series of cantilevered, overlapping volumes that cascade downward and ultimately nestle into the earth. Each level has a green roof and private patio with a unique scenic overlook.
The volumes of the house create garden space in the form of courtyard walls for privacy, with each rooftop doubling as garden space and outdoor lounge. Sculptural plants based on a palette of natives and low-water use succulents create a bold low-maintenance garden that complements the modern architecture.
The Summitridge interiors are modern and feminine with strong mid-century modern European influences. We selected a primarily neutral color palette of cream, ivory, blush, and violet tones. Soft curves abound, from the mid-century Vladimir Kagan Serpentine sofa and custom Marmol Radziner round parchment coffee table in the living room to the Pierre Paulin mushroom chairs and ottomans in the family room.
