SINGLE RESIDENTIAL “If you look at the Earth without architecture, it’s sometimes a little bit unpleasant. So there is this basic human need to do shelter in the broadest sense of the word, whether it’s a movie theater or a simple log cabin in the mountains. This is the core of architecture: To provide a space for human beings.” -Peter Zumthor

SINGLE RESIDENTIAL Wonderview - Glendale CA The main idea behind the project was to create a contemporary interpretation of a modern single family home. For the materials, we used a combination of travertine, glass, and smooth stucco. Some of the most noticeable features are the use of authentic colors and glass openings for the faรงade of the building. Because it is located on the hillside, we have also included plenty of opportunities for breathtaking views with a glass facade and open space. The overall aesthetic of the home can be described as modern, simple, and functional.

â€œArchitecture is involved with the world, but at the same time it has a certain autonomy. This autonomy cannot be explained in terms of traditional logic because the most interesting parts of the work are non-verbal. They operate within the terms of the work, like any art.â€? -Thom Mayne

The project consist of an single family renovation and addition, the client really like the existing floorplan so we tried to keep it as close as we could but make all the spaces more open and bigger. We kept the same amount of bedrooms and amenities. The interior renovation accomplished a more modern and stylish design that projects the client’s essence. The master bedroom SF increase by 1/3 from the existing SF and we added an office in the bedroom, the regular bedrooms got bigger closets and bathrooms. The new kitchen and dinning provide an open floorplan that will provide light to the spaces.
