Ranch House by The Archers

Location: Beverly Hills, California, USA
Year: 2016

Architects: The Archers


A rambling fifties ranch house within a canyon setting was extensively remodeled in the nineteen eighties, with unfortunate results. In lieu of restoration, which seemed implausible, we opted to keep the Beverly Hills ‘ranch’ vernacular but translate it through modernism. We looked to Eero Saarinen’s 1957 Miller House for cues on incorporating modern details – framing, casework and material combinations – within a postmodern ranch vocabulary. The new interior is highly detailed and precise, with a complex system of posts, beams and brickwork, all painted in many subtle shades and finishes of white, from dead-flat to high-gloss lacquer.

Summitridge Residence by Marmol Radziner Architects

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Location: Beverly Hills, California, US

ARCHITECTS: Marmol Radziner Architects

ARCHITECTURE CONSTRUCTION LANDSCAPE



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.

Feldman House by Core Development Group (Originally designed in 1953 by Gregory Ain)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Location:  Beverly Hills, CA

Built By Core, Designed By Core, Details, video


 


Originally designed in 1953 by famed mid-century modern architect Gregory Ain, Core Development Group has expanded and updated the Feldman House while preserving the integrity of the original architecture and context upon which it resides. This exquisite modern estate offers 11,300 square feet of private serenity on just under an acre of wooded grounds up the street from the Beverly Hills Hotel.

The existing mid-century modern house was preserved and seamlessly expanded without destroying the integrity of the original design. The height and scale of the additions create a boundary that centralizes the original structure accentuating its dramatic roof and deep overhangs.  The use of clear fir windows and doors, carried over from the original design, the continuation of the sloped roof and ceilings, the inclusion of private outdoor spaces adjacent to all bedrooms and master bath, integration of technology and lighting without detracting from the architectural forms, all make the addition blend in with the original.

Trousdale Estates Contemporary Home by Dennis Gibbens Architects

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Location: Beverly Hills, California, US

Area: 5600.0 ft2

Year: 2014


 


Architects: Dennis Gibbens Architects

Architect in Charge: Dennis Gibbens

Project Architect: Oren Dothan

Project Team: Scott Graham, Ryan Childers, Ricardo Moura, Raul Aguilera, Shana Cunningham

Landscape Design: Art Luna Studio

Interior Decorating: Jamie Bush + Co


This project called for the complete renovation of a 5500 square foot existing home in the Trousdale Estates section of Beverly Hills, California. Paul Trousdale bought 410 acres of the unbuilt property from the Doheny Estate in 1954 and soon after began developing sprawling view properties limited to single-level homes.

This property sits near the top of a cul-de-sac road and enjoys roughly 270° spectacular views of Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. The original house was designed in 1962. Curved and circular elements are repeated motifs that can be found throughout the original design.

The current owners bought the property with the intention of turning it into an open, airy and contemporary home for living and entertainment and to showcase their evolving collections of modern and contemporary photography. The remodeled design is timeless and elegant with elements of swank to be sure, but with a very forward-looking sensibility.

Throughout the design process, the goal was to edit the various elements of what had become, over time, an out-of-date house with some unfortunate additions. The bones of the house were quirky and meandering, yet encouraging.

At the exterior, the front façade was re-organized as a simple, platonic gesture in the curved shape of a monumental wall. The elevation is clad in ribbed Indiana limestone panels. The rough stone contrasts with the smooth-trowel painted stucco exterior of the remainder of the house. At night, a warm glow provided by concealed up-lighting provides an inviting welcome to the property.

The residence, which started out fifty years ago as a relatively modest home is now enjoying another life; it is a contemporary LA house for very worldly clients. Other than the front courtyard, the majority of the exterior is a simple affair with sweeping white stucco curves and a long serpentine glass wall reflecting the generous scope of the views; the house is something of a gateway to the landscape. It is so easy to simply pass through it, to be drawn to the outside – to the pool, the garden, and the mountains in the distance. With that kind of view, the one-story exterior architecture assumes a modest position relative to the dramatic setting. In contrast, the experience of the interior architecture is complex in its spatial flow and richness of materials and refined details.

Oak Pass Main House by Walker Workshop

Location: Beverly Hills, California, US

Area: 8,000 s.f.

Year: 2015


Architects: Walker Workshop

Photography: © Joe Fletcher


The Oak Pass main house sits on the top of a 3.5 acre ridge site with panoramic canyon views. There are over 130 protected Oak trees on the property. The house was sited to take advantage of the views without the house becoming a central visual focus.

The massing was reduced by utilizing an “upside down” program with the public spaces located above the bedrooms, which are buried into the hill and protected beneath a vegetated roof. A lower level courtyard allows light and air to flow to the buried hallway of the bedroom level.

A seventy five foot long lap pool with infinity edges on three of four sides, bisects the house and slips beneath one of the largest oaks on the property. The house is primarily constructed of structural concrete allowing for long, column free spans. The floors on the bedroom level are walnut. The floors on the upper level are limestone.

This hillside home is located in Trousdale, Beverly Hills a neighborhood of single story homes famed for their views and movie stars.

Our clients wanted an extensive basement level to provide entertaining spaces due to the limited options above grade. Our challenge was to find a way to get light to these spaces since the design would need to consist of a true basement.

We took the concept of a light well and expanded it to create a true water garden located in the middle of the house allowing us to create a dramatic glass bridge entry to the home. The bridge is a unique experience changing the user’s perception as they leave the garden behind and enter the house.

The water garden below dapples light throughout the basement making these spaces amongst the most interesting within the house contrasting with the view orientated rooms above.

The house is fused with natural light throughout and a warm palette of natural materials creates a very comfortable living environment.

BRAND STORY


Since its 1995 inception, the Kelly Wearstler Studio has grown from boutique interior design firm to global lifestyle brand. Driven by the signature aesthetic and idiosyncratic spirit of its creator and namesake, the Los Angeles-based company boasts a diverse range of modalities, taking an all-encompassing approach to design that includes everything from residential and commercial interiors to lighting, fabrics, furniture and home accessories and highly-anticipated limited-run gallery editions.

Over the past two decades, Wearstler’s protracted reach as a designer has expanded exponentially, designing multiple international hotel properties – including luxury hotels for the Viceroy brand and the new Proper Hotel Group – as well as grand residences from Beverly Hills to the Caribbean and around the globe. Her robust portfolio includes collaborations and partnerships with some of the most respected global brands across the luxury market space. A dual collaboration with landmark department store Bergdorf Goodman in 2006 saw Wearstler lending her exacting eye to both the popular seventh floor restaurant and her own eponymous boutique.

Renowned for her distinctive alchemy of soulful mixology and buoyed by an A-list client roster of leading names in music and entertainment, the Wearstler aesthetic has become synonymous with modern California luxury. Her designs, epitomized by a colorful mélange of materials, merge important historical reference points with contemporary influences.
