Laguna Beach, California is effectively-recognized for some of its gorgeous modern architecture. The Temple Hills Residence is a single of those enviable modern day dream houses with a series of multiple volumes, such as a new addition and overall renovation by Schola Architecture.
A singular, textured concrete box is the root of this extension, with glass and timber as the prime components. From the exterior, numerous cantilevering sets the eclectic tone, whilst the organic hillside setting gives additional dimension, not to mention impeccable views from the sloped terrain.
Living regions are set upon multilevel platforms, but still open up to each and every other although retaining daylight and supplying ventilation. Exposed medium-wood beam ceilings throughout resound with the home’s original 1950s vibe, even though adding a degree of warmth to the modern day spaces. Following that colour tone, different golds, yellows and browns–including varying species of wood-on-wood accents–make appearances throughout cabinetry, walls, furnishings and decor.
The interiors are derived of concrete, wood, steel and glass and 1 zone specifically exemplifies this elemental mix. The kitchen and living room share one particular elongated volume which is set with higher square and celerestory windows on one particular side and a large sliding glass door on the other generating seamless indoor-outside living.
The outdoor terraces reside on a variety of elevations, which contributes energy and movement to these lounging and dining places. A hot tub is nestled below a geometric wood pergola.
In the kitchen, yellow-stained wood cabinetry is sunny against the grey concrete walls and countertops. By way of a couple of methods, this space descends upon the living room, which is fitted with modular shelving and sofas resting upon a multi-colored accent rug. Beneath this living area, one more little set of stairs leads to a reduced-level study with a punchy neon lime lounge and white fur location rug.
Upstairs a enormous master suite awaits, but it is the concrete fireplace that is most eye-catching, angular in position and constructed into the bedroom wall which really mimics the exterior’s corrugated pattern. The walk-in shower is incredible, with a pivoting glass door which opens to a little, private stone courtyard.
Plentiful glazing, like skylights, on this second story makes it possible for these spaces to feel airy. The sitting region with retro contemporary furnishings is a throwback, yet meshes properly with the far more contemporary feel of this California dream property.
The Temple Hills Residence is a modern structure connecting multifaceted design and style elements with the distinct character of its owners.
