FLEETWOOD WINDOWS & DOORS

The ‘Cadillac’ of Sliding Glass Doors Fleetwood Windows & Doors started in 1961 with the vision of being the best aluminum sliding door company in the Western United States. In fact, the company name was inspired by one of Cadillac’s most elite luxury sedans, the Fleetwood, establishing its reputation as the “Cadillac” of sliding glass doors. With engineering at the forefront of Fleetwood’s success, the company has continued to bring innovative design concepts to the manufacturing floor for more than 50 years. From windows and hinge doors, to traditional sliding and multi-slide glass doors, Fleetwood prides itself on designing and manufacturing the finest windows and doors for modern luxury homes through its national, high-end window dealers. Whether for energy savings, comfort and security, weather protection, budget or style, the residential and commercial applications are endless. Ever-connected with the design community, this family-owned and -operated company is rooted in more humble beginnings. “I grew up sweeping floors, making price books and working in the factory,” general manager Mark McCoy says. “But I’ve always had Fleetwood blood coursing through my veins.” Today, Fleetwood’s dedication to architectural integrity and the meticulous refinement of the “little things” has distinctively positioned the company as a true example of the American dream.

“WE CONTINUE TO BE DRIVEN BY ARCHITECTS AS THEY PUSH THE ENVELOPE FOR MORE EXPANSIVE WINDOW AND DOOR SYSTEMS, WITH MORE GLASS AND LESS FRAME.” FLEETWOOD ... LEADING THE WAY IN GREEN With an unwavering commitment to eco-friendly manufacturing, Fleetwood leads the fenestration market with the greenest multi-slide and sliding pocket doors in the United States. “Our aluminum products are manufactured using recycled aluminum and glass, and are offered in inert coatings and finishes,” McCoy says. “To lessen our environmental impact even more, 100 percent of our aluminum scrap is recyclable.” In addition, Fleetwood is the leader in providing LEED-certified homes with “green-friendly” windows and doors!

THE SHAPE OF THINGS

I’ve always been fascinated by the built environment— the influence that a single structure, a street or an entire neighborhood can elicit and how that manifests over time. Take Miami Beach, for example, which happens to be the city where I’m drafting this letter. Arguably, architecture is what largely helped evolve this mangroveand-mosquito-laden barrier island into one of America’s most vibrant urban destinations. What began in the early 1900s with developer Carl Fisher’s Mediterranean Revival architecture segued into a tropical adaptation of Art Deco in the ’30s and was enhanced by a defining postwar extravagant Modernism movement pioneered by Morris Lapidus. Today, Miami’s bold, expanding skyline is a progression of those ideas realized through the lens of architecture’s most esteemed names: Herzog & de Meuron, Norman Foster, Rem Koolhaas and Frank Gehry, to name a few. In this issue, we give props to architecture’s innovators and icons: We ID five famous house museums to put on your bucket list; shine a spotlight on of-the-moment residential architects; and examine the connection between Los Angeles’ imaginative structures and the art world. As Winston Churchill famously said, “We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.” From the residences that we inhabit to the buildings we work in and the public spaces that surround us, design matters.

Welcome to the May/June issue of Luxe Interiors + Design San Francisco! We were very excited to partner with some of our amazing clients these past few months. First, I want to thank TBS Design Galleryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s founder and CEO, Mamuka Grigolia, for his support and the fabulous event he orchestrated at his new design gallery in Santa Clara. The evening was a huge success, filled with music and wonderful food and wine for all to enjoy! Then, this past February during Design San Francisco, Luxe partnered with Studio Coupar and Quintus for the #girlboss event. Held at Studio Coupar, the standingroom-only panel of three remarkable women shared both their art and stories. We also collaborated with one of our fantastic advertising partners, De Sousa Hughes, for an inspiring presentation by renowned textile designer Lori Weitzner and a personal look at her new book, Ode to Color: The Ten Essential Palettes for Living and Design, followed by a book signing with incredible desserts and champagne. It was a wonderful way to kick off spring. As always, I want to thank all our fantastic clients for their support of Luxe San Francisco. Enjoy the issue!

CONTRIBUTORS

GET TO KNOW A FEW OF OUR CONTRIBUTORS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY AS THEY TALK ALL THINGS DESIGN. PRODUCED BY SARAH RAMIREZ

LAURA MOSS Photographer / New York If you could shoot anywhere in the world, where would it be? Dubai or Shanghai. I think amazing things are being done in these places. On your design wish list: Furniture pieces that can hide all signs of technology and still be beautiful, as well as a great comfortable chair that is cat-proof. Also, I would love to own the perfect ceiling fan. Having grown up in South Florida without air conditioning, ceiling fans were definitely important, but I find that their design is sometimes lacking. Favorite book on your nightstand: I really love Steven Pinker’s The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined. Preferred superpower: The ability to freeze time. Best career advice you’ve received: “It’s freelance—you are free to work with whomever you want.” I would not say it’s the best advice ever, but I do love it as it makes me step back and see how lucky I am to be in such a creative field and not stuck in an office forced to follow a specific career track.

JOANNE FURIO

Writer / San Francisco Whose work are you most influenced by design-wise? Charles and Ray Eames. My kids say that I’m stuck in the 1970s, but it’s midcentury elements that I love the most: low-slung houses, groovy furniture, tropical houseplants, mod clothes, heavy eye makeup and sky-high hair—all of it. Ideal work trip: Being sent on a travel assignment to India, Japan or Mongolia. All my Asian friends tell me I need to go to the Far East. Prized possessions: A Donghia deep armchair I got at a sample sale in New York, my grandmother’s marble column table lamps and a sterling-silver bubble ring from the ’60s that had been my aunt’s. Most interesting person you’ve ever met: Joshua Miele, a member of the board at Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired in San Francisco; he’s blind and creates all these new technologies for the visually impaired. If not a writer, I would be… A landscape architect. I love gardens and stone.

LX_COM13_Contributors.indd 98

NATHAN KIRKMAN Photographer / Chicago My biggest creative influences come from… Anyone that shows a passion and continues to work at it. Who are some of the most fascinating people you’ve come across in your life? Author Ray Bradbury, designer Orlando Diaz-Azcuy and photographer Tim Hursley are all at the top of my list. I would love to one day own... An Hermès Leica camera, La Cornue’s Château 150 in carbon fiber and a photograph by Larry Sultan. What advice would you give to your 20-year-old self? I would most likely tell myself to take a course on business management—and to buy some Apple stock. Dream assignment: Anything that allows me to travel to new places!

CHRISTINE DEORIO Writer / Denver Design obsession: Benjamin Moore’s Homestead Green paint, which I discovered while visiting floral designer Frances Harjeet’s Queen Anne-style home in Denver. It’s elegant and soothing, especially in a room with lots of soft, natural light. If you could interview anyone, who would it be? Terry Gross, host of NPR’s Fresh Air radio show, who has spoken with many fascinating people during her career. I’m always impressed by how prepared she is for every interview and by her ability to ask probing questions in such a friendly way. I’d like to ask her how she prepares, how she handles difficult or taciturn guests, and how she stays so well-informed about everything. What’s intriguing you now in the world of design? The revitalization of Rust Belt cities. I love a good comeback story. The word “Detroit” used to conjure images of once-magnificent buildings in ruins. Now, many of those buildings are hip restaurants, and the city is coming to be known as “the new Brooklyn” for its influx of creatives and burgeoning art and design scenes.

RADAR / ARCHITECTURALLY SPEAKING

D R A F T

It’s all in the details for leading architects across the country. For Duncan McRoberts, it’s all about paying tribute to classic masters (above); for Cade Hayes, the nuances of the southwestern landscape lead him to design inspired structures with intriguing aesthetic facets (right). Matthew Grzywinski’s and Matt Berman’s works (opposite, from left to right respectively) stand out for their distinct uses of shapes, colors and materials.

RADAR / ARCHITECTURALLY SPEAKING HUNTER FLEETWOOD ‡

▼ MELISSA BRILLHART

Los Angeles | fleetwoodfernandez.com

Miami | brillhartarchitecture.com

WHY WE LOVE HIM: Hunter Fleetwood believes in the power of the built environment on affecting human action and thought. His restaurants, homes and commercial projects, created in conjunction with partner Mariapaz Fernandez-Trillo, demonstrate a forward-thinking—and often whimsical—point of view.

WHY WE LOVE HER: Inspired by everything from childhood woodworking projects to the Shaker structures of New Hampshire, Melissa Brillhart works in tandem with her husband, Jacob, designing homes that place a heavy emphasis on their surrounding contexts. ON THE HORIZON: The couple is currently working on a Bahamian cottage for themselves—a 600-square-foot residence that pulls inspiration from historic Bahamian architecture as well as the Creole Cabinet-Loggia typology—and celebrating the publication of Jacob’s new book, titled Voyage Le Corbusier: Drawing on the Road.

ON THE HORIZON: At the moment, Fleetwood is thrilled about undertaking a residential project for a young family in L.A. that is involved in the arts, which is allowing him to push his creativity to the max. IN HIS WORDS: “While we are supporters of the heightened influx of technology both in the design process and construction methods, on every project we advocate for the inclusion of artisanal quality craftsmanship. When we are successful, you will see form that is handmade and machine-fabricated in juxtaposition. We find it a captivating dichotomy.”

 DUNCAN MCROBERTS

Kirkland, WA | mcroberts-associates.com WHY WE LOVE HIM: Duncan McRoberts pours over archeological records, measured drawings and books before building a precedent file that invokes the design principles and tectonic characters of the master works he studies. He then crafts work that aims to achieve a perfect balance in composition, beauty and proportion. ON THE HORIZON: McRoberts is designing a boarding school—in classic Oxbridge-style architecture—and a new coastal-traditional neighborhood development on 80 acres in Oregon.

MATTHEW GRZYWINSKI ▲

New York | gp-arch.com

WHY WE LOVE HIM: For his architectural works, Matthew Grzywinski embraces sustainability, function and his aesthetic experience to design spaces that exhibit a sumptuous minimalism. His partnership with fellow architect Amador Pons has birthed a newfound design philosophy based on the principles of beauty, innovation and detail. ON THE HORIZON: Grzywinski’s firm is beginning construction on a residential building in London in addition to a new apartment building in the East Village of Manhattan and a structure on the campus of Cambridge University. IN HIS WORDS: “We try not to chase innovation or novelty for its own sake. Our struggle to marry the rigorous with the exuberant yields interesting results.”

LX_COM13_Radar_ArchitectsToWatch.indd 104

IN HIS WORDS: “The value of artistic import lies in an ability to mediate between ourselves and the schema of our life experiences. Our work is meant to promise harmony of place.”

 CADE HAYES

Tucson | dustdb.com WHY WE LOVE HIM: Cade Hayes founded the firm Dust in 2007 with co-collaborator Jesús Edmundo Robles Jr. and worked diligently to put together a creative team that is deeply connected to its southwestern desert roots. The firm’s architecture, furniture, hardware and jewelry reflect a boundless respect for natural materials and exhibit a serene display of restraint. ON THE HORIZON: Dust is working on its first public work: a pavilion for the Tucson Audubon Society’s Paton Center for Hummingbirds. IN HIS WORDS: “We are not trying to keep up with current thinking or cool trends; we are simply trying to do really thoughtful, sensitive work. We’d rather be classic than new.”

FLEETWOOD PHOTO: BENNY CHAN. BRILLHART PHOTO: CLAUDIA URIBE. MCROBERTS PHOTO: LAURIE BLACK. HAYES PHOTO: BILL TIMMERMAN. GRZYWINSKI PHOTO: FLOTO + WARNER.

IN HER WORDS: “As the office has grown and matured, we have taken something instinctual and transformed it into something more deliberate and conscious. We are much more cognizant of and responsive to the specific spatial and atmospheric qualities in architecture that move or affect us emotionally.”

3/20/17 2:38 PM


RADAR / ARCHITECTURALLY SPEAKING

 GULLA JONSDOTTIR

Los Angeles | gullajonsdottir.com WHY WE LOVE HER: Icelandic-born Gulla Jonsdottir has a poetic understanding of dynamic forms, leading her to create groundbreaking spatial experiences with her designs. ON THE HORIZON: On the heels of a furniture debut at Salone del Mobile, Jonsdottir is working on projects around the world, including the Macau Roosevelt hotel in China, the Sugar Factory at the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California, and penthouses in San Francisco. IN HER WORDS: “My first employer was Richard Meier, a great architect with a great sense of geometry, which appealed to my earlier studies of mathematics. Today, I prefer to be more free. There are no straight lines in the human body, so why should there be any in the spaces we occupy?”

JUANCARLOS FERNANDEZ

St. Helena, CA | signumarchitecture.com WHY WE LOVE HIM: With a sincere focus on sustainability, Juancarlos Fernandez and the team behind Signum Architecture create residential and commercial spaces as well as wineries that echo the landscapes in which they reside through the use of natural materials.

SCOTT LINDENAU

Colorado | studiobarchitects.net

ON THE HORIZON: Currently, Fernandez is putting the finishing touches on a home on 40 acres in the hills of St. Helena. The client searched the valley for years to find the perfect property and enlisted Fernandez to create a house unlike any other he’s designed.

WHY WE LOVE HIM: As design principal at Studio B Architecture + Interiors, Scott Lindenau believes in reflective architecture: He creates crafted, modern designs that aim to allow clients to view themselves differently. While Studio B’s ultramodern projects seem grandiose, the firm strives to emulate a covetable, welcoming lifestyle.

IN HIS WORDS: “Our mission is to engage the power of architecture to stir emotion while setting the stage for inspiring living.”

ON THE HORIZON: In conjunction with the team at Studio B, Lindenau is diversifying his work in both location and project type— producing projects in several states, as well as Costa Rica, and working on several residences, a school, a tropical boutique hotel and a recycling waste treatment center.

 DAN WHEELER

Chicago | wkarch.com WHY WE LOVE HIM: Dan Wheeler leads his firm, Wheeler Kearns Architects, in creating architectural snowflakes, with each design reflecting a remarkably different point of view and energy. Wheeler’s work captures a fresh, modern sensibility, but each project also has a singular focus on the clients’ desires and the overall mission of the site.

 MATT BERMAN

New York | workshopapd.com WHY WE LOVE HIM: Matt Berman, along with cofounder of Workshop/APD, Andrew Kotchen, crafts public and private spaces that demonstrate a keen understanding of how people interact with design. ON THE HORIZON: On the boards this year for Workshop/APD: a 45,000-square-foot residential tower in the West Village, a new hotel in Washington Heights and summer homes in Bal Harbour, Florida; South Beach; Nantucket, Massachusetts; and the Bahamas, among others. IN HIS WORDS: “Our designs are deeply rooted in the human experience and we look to architects, fashion, history—or even food—for inspiration.”

LX_COM13_Radar_ArchitectsToWatch.indd 106

ON THE HORIZON: Having recently completed work on The Alice, a community engagement space at Goodman Theatre in Chicago, Wheeler is looking forward to a year full of projects dreamed up for a number of diverse clients, including several museum spaces, theaters, schools and homes. IN HIS WORDS: “We just try to do good, thoughtful work and make it emotionally meaningful to a place, to people from all walks of life that encounter it, and to ourselves.”

JONSDOTTIR PHOTO: KHANH RENAUD. FERNANDEZ PHOTO: ADRIÁN GREGORUTTI. WHEELER PHOTO: STEVE HALL, HEDRICH BLESSING. BERMAN PHOTO: DONNA DOTAN. LINDENAU PHOTO: DRAPER WHITE.

IN HIS WORDS: “Our work is clear, direct and devoid of frivolous materials. It’s about conveying a message of clarity and minimalism while reflecting our rigorous process of ‘distillation.’•”

Los Angeles architects Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee, who redefined beach house living with the Vault House (shown here and at bottom), are also reinventing ways to show art, as with their work on the “Moholy-Nagy: Future Present” exhibition at LACMA.

Los Angeles is known worldwide as a place for creatives. In your opinion, what makes the city such a popular destination for artists these days? Artists are drawn by the presence of an arts scene: lots of other artists, art schools and the explosion of new galleries. This scene exists

PRODUCED BY MARY ORE

here in part because L.A. is still affordable relative to other art capitals. In some neighborhoods, artists are still able to find houses with garages and large yards for making large works, and in downtown L.A. and some other industrial areas, they can find the kinds of studios that have long

attracted artists: unplanned, sometimes illegal, but spacious and affordable live-work spaces in old warehouses and light industrial buildings. Which neighborhoods are you finding artists migrating to for their living spaces and studios? Currently, they’re migrating to areas in L.A. that are still affordable and have dwelling spaces with room to make art, including parts of downtown L.A. as well as Boyle Heights, Highland Park, Frogtown, Elysian Park and Inglewood. Often, though, these migrations can cause pushback from the existing communities in several of these areas over fears of gentrification. Has this explosion of artistic talent affected the cultural and architectural dynamic of the city? Yes, definitely. We’re seeing a number of architects who are collaborating closely with artists. For example, Jimenez Lai, of Bureau Spectacular, recently collaborated with New York artist Grayson Cox on “Speechbuster / 99 Chairs,” an exhibit commissioned by Storefront for Art and Architecture with a grant from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. Peter Zellner’s design for the West Hollywood gallery of Matthew Marks,

Are there any local architects that we should be keeping an eye on? Lorcan O’Herlihy is designing some of the most interesting multifamily dwellings in West Hollywood and Los Angeles, like his most recent, SL11024, in Westwood Village. Tom Wiscombe, too, an architect and teacher at SCI-Arc, is bringing an experimental aesthetic to his projects, including the upcoming, private Main Museum

in downtown L.A. Then, there are Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee, from Johnston Marklee, who are designing extremely refined private homes and art spaces, including the Menil Drawing Institute that will open at The Menil Collection in Houston in October. Finally, LA-Más is a firm that aims to improve residential and public spaces in low-income areas but maintains a strong Pop sensibility while doing so. Favorite public buildings in Los Angeles? Studio Jantzen and Behnisch Architekten’s Parking Structure #6 in Santa Monica and Lehrer Architects’ Central Park Recreation Pool in South L.A. top my list. The colorful parking structure reflects city planners’ goal of beautifying an otherwise banal or even ugly building type. Not only is it intended to accommodate large numbers of bikes and electric cars as well as ordinary cars, it has the added feature of a dramatic red staircase on the façade, aimed at encouraging drivers to walk up and down stairs. For his part, Michael Lehrer drew on California artists Richard Diebenkorn and Wayne Thiebaud and their “beautiful coloration,” he says, as well as David Hockney’s “ebullient turquoise water,” when he and his team designed the pool to replace one that had been closed to locals for 12 years. The design was built on a budget but proves that imagination can go a long way in creating an attractive public venue in a community that had long needed one. Why have you chosen radio as your preferred method of communicating with the architecture community? What does this medium add to such a traditionally visual conversation? I was originally drawn to radio because I like asking questions and hearing smart people talk—specifically as it relates to communicating architecture, which is, of course, a visual medium. Paradoxically, radio frees one from images and gives the interviewer time to explore, without visual distraction, the ideas behind and the human impact of buildings.

And by the same token, has the architectural dynamic of the city had any effect on the community of new artists who are now calling it home? I’m seeing some intriguing things happening in museum and gallery design at the moment. For example, the installation that architecture firm Johnston Marklee created for the “Moholy-Nagy: Future Present” show at LACMA breaks from the tendency to shroud modern and contemporary art in white-painted rooms. The exhibit features a subtly dramatic layout, with a sequence of galleries that move through the artist’s career, denoted by slate gray walls at the start and progressing through time to light gray. Into the walls of these galleries, they’ve cut doorways that line up in a slashing diagonal, making for a moment of surreal visual drama in an otherwise restrained design.

PARKING STRUCTURE

too, is noteworthy and exemplifies California minimalism, while Kulapat Yantrasast of wHY, who has worked with many artists, has designed Christie’s brand-new multipurpose flagship space in Beverly Hills. Finally, I’m looking forward to seeing what comes out of the union between Frank Escher and Ravi GuneWardena, of Escher GuneWardena Architecture, and artist Sharon Lockhart, who was selected to represent Poland at this year’s Venice Biennale.

WHAT WOULD IT BE LIKE IF YOU COULD VISIT YOUR FAVORITE ARCHITECTS AT HOME? THESE FAMOUS DOMICILES-TURNED-MUSEUMS PROVIDE THE ANSWER TO NEARLY EVERY DESIGN LOVER’S MOST BURNING QUESTION. WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

 FALLINGWATER Mill Run, Pennsylvania Probably the best-known residence on our list, Fallingwater is a testament to everything architecture enthusiasts have come to love about Frank Lloyd Wright: attention-grabbing design that works with and not against its environment. Designed for department-store magnates, the Kaufmann family, Fallingwater is currently the only Wright-designed house that is open to the public with all of its original furniture and artwork on display precisely as they appeared upon the residence’s completion in 1939. REASON TO VISIT: Thanks to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, in collaboration with local arts and architecture organizations, the house provides a variety of immersive, educational experiences through a series of lectures and residencies—so it’s perfect for Wright fans who want a more in-depth look at the architect’s creative process.

EAMES HOUSE  Pacific Palisades, California The final home of legendary husbandand-wife design duo Charles and Ray Eames, this midcentury jewel box was a veritable creative playground for the couple thanks to its two-box modular structure: one of which contained their living quarters and the other which functioned as a working studio. Constructed in 1949, the building boasts a limited material palette of glass and steel with warm wooden accents throughout the interiors and pops of green from the verdant environs. REASON TO VISIT: If you’ve ever had the inclination to celebrate the bygone wedding of an envy-inducing couple you’ve never met, each year the Eames Foundation—which is responsible for the supervision of and conservancy efforts for the Pacific Palisades home—hosts a Members Appreciation Day during the week of June 20th, Charles and Ray’s anniversary, complete with guided tours and juried design competitions.

RADAR / ITINERARY FARNSWORTH HOUSE 

Plano, Illinois

One of only three residential homes in the United States designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the Farnsworth House is considered to be one of the purest examples of the pioneering architect’s bare-bones modern style. Comprised of one sole room, the weekend retreat was originally designed for prominent Chicago nephrologist Dr. Edith Farnsworth with floor-to-ceiling windows that facilitate an easy communion with nature. REASON TO VISIT: You’ll want to make it out to this handsome piece of architectural history before it gets the full Hollywood treatment: Actors Jeff Bridges and Maggie Gyllenhaal have recently signed on to appear in a feature film that will fictionalize the highly-speculated-upon relationship between Farnsworth and Mies van der Rohe that developed during the home’s construction.

 GROPIUS HOUSE Lincoln, Massachusetts The name of German architect Walter Gropius is nearly synonymous with the movement he is widely regarded to have founded: Bauhaus. And the home he built for himself and his family in Massachusetts may well have been the structure that helped cement the style as part of architecture’s canon. Built in 1938, the house blends traditional New England architectural elements like wood and brick with modernist materials like glass, plaster and chrome and today feels like a perfectly preserved time capsule. REASON TO VISIT: The Gropius House is a sight to behold any time, but when admired at night thanks to monthly events hosted by Historic New England, the organization responsible for the conservation of the property, the home is transformed by the architect’s own innovative lighting scheme.

LX_COM13_Radar_HouseMuseums .indd 106

While The Glass House is only one of 14 structures on late architect Philip Johnson’s massive 49-acre property in Connecticut, it’s easy to see why it’s also the most beloved: its wallless construction makes it feel more like a dream of a house than a house itself. For all its avant-garde flourishes, though, its interior provides a fairly traditional living space inhabited by Johnson himself when he was in residence there from 1949 to 2005. REASON TO VISIT: Although the house is only open to the public May through November, it makes up for lost time with a near-dizzying schedule of events and art exhibits. Last year’s landscape installation by the artist Yayoi Kusama, for example, transformed the property’s newly restored pond into a fluid art gallery thanks to the addition of 1,300 floating steel sculptures.

WHO: Soft-sculpture artist Liz Robb, who creates tactile pieces using materials such as cotton, jute and indigo from her Bay Area studio. WHAT: Followers will see a mixture of in-process pieces and finished in-gallery works. Robb’s images of threads, weavings and paintings emphasize color and texture, such as the natural fibers of wool or reed. Her sculptures can be compact and highly detailed, whereas others can be unraveled and cascading onto the floor. WHY: The artist encourages her followers to view artwork from varying perspectives. She fastens her pieces to the wall or ceiling, allowing for multiple vantage points and structural planes. IN HER WORDS: “My artwork centers around the dialogue between the grid and its manifestations as form, content and medium. The visceral experience of the work conveys a message of beauty and shape that exemplifies my interpretation of the grid.”

A new corkscrew-like structure will rise 400 feet tall in the heart of San Francisco, just blocks from the Bay Bridge, Embarcadero and Rincon Park. Designed by Studio Gang Architects, Folsom Bay Tower will incorporate the city’s classic bay windows—with a twist. The glass panels will rotate over the height of the tower, offering ample views and natural light while creating a compelling artistic façade. At ground level, the building will have retail space along Folsom and Main streets as well as 150 bicycle parking spots, and the rooftop will feature 3,100 square feet of amenity space. The 393-unit building is expected to be complete in early 2019. studiogang.com Adding to a fresh wave of creativity in the spirited Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco is the Tilden Hotel on Taylor Street.

TALKING SHOP WITH SAMUEL GENTHNER

BLACK & GOLD

When did you open? We opened our doors at 15th and Noe streets in November 2013. What attracted you to the location? It was a corner spot with 20-foot-high ceilings on one of the most charming streets in San Francisco. Describe the concept for the space. When I signed the lease, it was in the process of becoming a restaurant, so the renovation took nearly five months. We put in new flooring, painted, added track lighting and created a custom built-in cabinet. On the floor: We focus on designs from the 20th century—hand-picked items that make a house a home. You’ll find luxe chandeliers and lacquered side tables next to a George Nakashima nightstand. Where do you source? I search from Palm Springs to New Jersey and just about everywhere in between. My style is eclectic—I love mixing eras to create contrast.

THE INSIDER CURATOR

FOR-SITE FOUNDATION “I’m most intrigued by an exhibit when it brings my attention to specific aspects of place. In response to that interest, I started the non-profit For-Site Foundation, which is dedicated to the creation, understanding and presentation of art about place. For-Site is unique in that we achieve our work through partnerships with organizations such as the National Park Service. Our exhibits address the social and natural history of the location where we’re working. We engage artists who can address the backgrounds of these places while prompting the public to ask their own questions, too.” –CHERYL HAINES, FOR-SITE.ORG

If Alice Tacheny is inspired by things falling apart, the sculptural and functional furniture she creates in her Northern California studio evokes just the opposite. The designer, whose career has been cemented in woodworking, recently expanded her portfolio to include such materials as concrete, leather, copper and brass, seen in multiple new hardware collections released last year with more in the works. “The dominant theme has been a focus on simple forms articulated through different materials in unexpected ways,” she says. The Midwesternerturned-Bay-Area resident shares her perspective on all things design in the region. alicetacheny.com What’s exciting you in the area right now? The way Oakland is changing is encouraging in terms of the food, music and art scenes. It’s diverse, both culturally and economically, and feels genuine. Being a Midwesterner, I find it more relatable. Go-to shops? Temescal Alley is one of my favorite places to visit in Oakland. Esqueleto is probably one of the best curated shops in the Bay Area. Marin has a little catching up to do with San Francisco and Oakland (sorry Marin!) but there are still some great places popping up. I like the Marin Country Mart in Larkspur. There, you can check out Erica Tanov, Farmshop and Diesel bookstore, among others. Favorite places to explore? I have a soft spot for crumbling buildings—I tend to be most inspired by things that are falling apart. I love Jack London State Historic Park and roaming through the ruins of the Wolf House—London’s dream mansion, which was under construction but abandoned after a fire started. Another interesting building is the Marin County Civic Center designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It mixes institutional functionality and high-minded modernism.

DATE BOOK After opening her eponymous boutique four years ago in the Pacific Heights neighborhood, it didn’t take long for Jessie Black to amass an extensive list of clients requesting her interior design services. “People were asking me to recreate similar surrounds in their own homes,” she says. Black’s decorating style emphasizes timeless luxury showcased through a serene and understated palette of neutral hues, natural materials and layered textures. “Wood, white and sunlight are my favorite design ingredients,” she says. When the designer is not cultivating her next project or expanding her business (she recently added custom furniture design), she’s busy discovering local artisan brands and craftsmen, such as Gerhard Ceramics, Fells/Andes and Carolynn Haydu, to introduce in her boutique. Here, the Bay Area resident gives us a tour of her go-to spots in the city. jessieblack.com 7 a.m. I like to start the day with an early morning stroll through the Presidio with my dog, Max. It’s the absolute best part of my day. Occasionally, I’ll head to SoulCycle or Yoga Tree beforehand. Exercise helps me clear my mind so I can calmly tackle anything that comes my way. 9 a.m. We have so many cute cafés in San Francisco, so I like to have my morning meetings in coffee shops. I adore As Quoted, especially since it’s just up the road from my boutique. The banana muffins are the best! Rose’s Café or Le Marais Bakery (for a croissant) are also my favorites. 11 a.m. If I am sourcing accessories for a client, I love nothing more than staying local. I always start on Sacramento Street and then expand my search from there. This street has really evolved over the past few years.

New boutique Found by Maja always has such unique treasures, while Poetica Art & Antiques carries an array of vintage finds. 1 p.m. I’m currently working on an exciting design project in The Pacific building, so I often stroll Fillmore Street for a quick lunch. Each time I plan to try some place new but Jane is my usual haunt. 3 p.m. After checking in at the boutique, I’ll head to the San Francisco Design Center. McGuire is one of my favorite showrooms. It’s fresh, earthy and modern. I really like De Sousa Hughes, too. I also always try to pop by Coup D’Etat if I am on the hunt for a bold statement piece. 7 p.m. After work, I’ll meet up with girlfriends or I’ll end the day with a casual dinner with my husband. I love cozy home-cooked dinners but with so many great restaurants, we are more often compelled to head out. My favorite is a casual pasta or pizza at Fiorella. We also love 1760, Cala or Nico.

SYNCHRONICITY BY HUBBARDTON FORGE In the world of design, lighting often plays a supporting role. In the hands of luxury lighting manufacturer Hubbardton Forge, it steals the show. The company’s new line, Synchronicity, puts the spotlight on their sculptural, hand-forged metal with the added elegance of Swarovski crystals. “We were looking for something with a bolder voice,” design director David Kitts says. “To design a fixture with real star power, a la Audrey Hepburn.” With carefully crafted precision and purposeful placement, Hubbardton Forge’s in-house designers cradle the crystals within each fixture, like a fine jewel. In some cases, the crystals take center stage, in others, they’re treated as an accent. “We’re striving for a 50-50 role with crystal and forged elements in a very organic way,” Kitts continues. With myriad residential and commercial applications, Synchronicity captures the heritage of Hubbardton Forge with lighting that plays the lead role in any design.

SYNCHRONICITY + SWAROVSKI A SERENDIPITOUS AFFAIR How did the world’s foremost crystal maker join forces with foremost luxury lighting designer Hubbardton Forge? It was serendipity for Synchronicity. Swarovski approached Hubbardton Forge toward the end of 2015 as they were developing a new way to cut crystal. At the same time, Hubbardton Forge was looking to craft the next statement piece for the home. “Swarovski was the ideal partnership,” Kitts tells. TOP. A unity of craft and glamour, the Courbé Duet features the world premiere of the new Wave Cut crystal from Swarovski embraced by flowing steel tendrils. BOTTOM.

ZEPHYR Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Zephyr looks back at the defining moments in the company’s history and its game-changing kitchen hoods. In 1997, it was the first manufacturer to bring power ventilation to the modern kitchen, with three undercabinet hoods. By 2001, Zephyr became known for chimney-style, stainless-steel hoods, which remain prominent. Aligned with a design-centric approach, the company partnered with the world’s most influential designers, including Fu-Tung Cheng and Robert Brunner, who balance aesthetics and technology with a masterful eye. Today, Zephyr sets industry standards in technology, through its DCBL Suppression System®, which renders the hood virtually silent and supremely energy-efficient, and its Bloom™ HD and BriteStrip™ LED products. “We continue to elevate the kitchen through design, discovery and care,” president Luke Siow says. In the hands of Zephyr, the onceoverlooked hood has become a major player in the appliance category, inspiring a new generation of kitchen design.

TURNING HEADS AGAIN ... BLACK STAINLESS STEEL Zephyr adds to its list of firsts with the launch of Black Stainless Steel Hoods, made with titanium coating, to the luxury appliance market. Aside from its striking aesthetic value, the new black stainless steel promises uniformity, durability and strength with military-grade protection, and anti-smudge and fingerprint-resistant properties. In addition, each hood can be outfitted with the company’s technological innovations, including BriteStrip™ LED lighting and ICON Touch® controls. TOP. Shown is the Ravenna wall hood in black stainless steel, with a smoke-gray glass canopy. BOTTOM. Zephyr’s 7,000-square-foot San Francisco showroom is located in the heart of the Design District.

WEATHEREND ESTATE FURNITURE No other company embodies quality and durability like Weatherend, the Maine outdoor furniture builder steeped in century-old traditions. Think back to 1905, when landscape architect Hans Heistad worked the coastal properties of several summer estates in Maine. One estate, named Weatherend, was his pride and joy. It is here that he crafted landscapes complemented with outdoor pieces that became the inspiration for Weatherend’s furniture designs. The influence of Heistad, along with boatbuilding skills taught by his father, enabled owner Gil Harper to introduce yacht construction integrity to outdoor furniture. These skills, combined with marine materials, have resulted in Weatherend’s signature curves and finishes that add grace and endurance to any residential or commercial space. “Our yacht-building expertise allows us to create innovative designs that can be customized to any outdoor setting,” Harper says.

WEATHEREND’S COLLECTIONS ESTATE: With 80 to 100 pieces, Weatherend’s original Estate collection is inspired by designs Heistad created while working on the Weatherend and Pulitzer estates from 1905 to 1935. YACHTING: Using curves for comfort, the Yachting collection has a distinctive design with each piece inspired by life on the water. ANGELA ADAMS: When Harper saw well-known textile and furniture designer Angela Adams’ work, he recognized an opportunity to introduce it to the outdoor market. EXPRESSIONS: The unique Expressions collection is a completely custom line that gives clients the opportunity to specify design, shape, color and finish for any “expression” they want. WINDSOR: The company’s newest casual and dining chairs pay homage to the first outdoor furniture brought to the colonies, but with a contemporary spin. *All Weatherend furniture is available at JANUS et Cie showrooms across the country.

The Weatherondack Chair and Ottoman is an award-winning design that brings a fresh look to the Adirondack chair. BOTTOM. Part of a larger set, the Campobello Casual Chair suits any outdoor setting.

BREAKTHROUGH DOOR + WINDOW DESIGN Pivot: Launching summer 2017, LaCantina’s new Pivot system makes a statement for any large entry or patio door opening, featuring large panels with transom and sidelite options in a full range of materials. Folding: The most versatile, Contemporary Clad features a low-maintenance aluminum exterior with multiple profile options and the warmth of a wood interior.  Sliding: LaCantina’s new class of multi-slide doors combines the optimal aesthetics and performance of a high-end lift-slide with the functionality and value of a multi-slide.  Swing: The new swing doors create more space than typical single or French doors, and are made using architectural-grade stainless-steel hinges and robust door panels.  Screen: LaCantina’s screening systems were the first designed specifically for large openings. Whether for insect protection, transparency, privacy or energy efficiency, its pleated and non-pleated options provide the solution.  TOP. Photograph Courtesy of BUILD LLC

EXPERIENCE THE UNEXPECTED Twice a year, thousands of interior designers come to Las Vegas Market to see what’s new and what’s hot, and get ahead of trends for the coming season. Presenting a cross section of 4,000-plus resources, Las Vegas Market is an unrivaled destination for inspiration.

Debbie Cahill Turner Design Seattle, WA “With so many of my favorite vendors exhibiting at the show, I always walk away with incredible finds for my clients. Most recently, I found vintage vinyl floor cloths in great color combinations, which I love to use in casual dining spaces, at Spicher and Company. Blush and pink tones, often paired with gold metals and ginkgo motifs in lighting, accessories and furniture, were everywhere. Organic forms inspired by nature were quite popular too. My favorite was Currey & Company’s Forest chandelier with gilded branches dripping in quartz crystal. Since I’m based on the West Coast, I find Las Vegas Market to be one of the most comprehensive and inspiring shows to attend. Download the market app to navigate the show with ease, and make it a point to stop by showrooms with which you’re unfamiliar. You never know what cool, new lines you’ll find.”

Woodson & Rummerfield’s House of Design Los Angeles, CA “We’ve always found incredible, undiscovered furniture and lighting lines, as well as spectacular tabletop accessory companies, at Las Vegas Market. In addition to shopping for furnishings, we love finding unique styling details, such as stunning drapery hardware, exquisite bed linens, beautiful stemware and more. We’ve also witnessed many trends evolve at the show, from the wave of linen fabric upholstery and French napkin trends, to bold ethnic rug collections and hospitality quality furnishings. We’re constantly surprised by our new finds each season. Don’t miss a thing, map out the World Market Center and allow for extra time to explore. You’re guaranteed to always find something. Truly, Las Vegas Market is a smart design resource with so much to offer for a whole design project.”

ADG San Francisco, CA “The sheer volume of resources available to designers at Las Vegas Market is mind-boggling. Each season there are more and more innovations and new products that we have never seen before, which is always exciting. Since it’s hosted in Las Vegas, there’s a level of excitement and energy like no other show. My most recent favorite product finds are the stylish and edgy CASEGOODS collection at SHO MODERN and the breadth of luxury home accessories at Noir. I’m always inspired by elegant materials and meticulous craftsmanship, and love seeing the trend of custom requests and collaborations between designers and vendors continue—no matter what the product is. To maximize your time at the show, make sure you have a list of “not to be missed” vendors and remember to bring a ton of business cards. As much as the show is about sourcing, it’s also about networking.”

Las Vegas Market is open to the trade only, July 30 – August 3, 2017. Don’t miss the Las Vegas Market and Luxe Interiors + Design’s “Ahead of the Curve” trend presentation on August 1st! Register online at lasvegasmarket.com

ANDREA COCHRAN

LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT ACOCHRAN.COM

At first sight: The Radiant lamps are elegant and timeless, perfectly reflecting Janice Feldman’s personal vision. I love how the carved surfaces contrast with the simplicity of the orbs, resulting in this beautifully crafted texture juxtaposed with minimal design. On the job: My work has always been grounded in modernism and minimalist art; I am interested in the perception of nature and natural phenomena in relation to more structured forms. In the daylight… These lamps look like elegant stone sculptures, solid and weighty. At night, they are transformed into lanterns, with an airiness that belies the materiality of the stone—I’m reminded of the paper lanterns you see in the Japanese tōrō nagashi ceremony. At home: The subtle genius of these lamps is their versatility. They could stand on a table beautifully but could also effectively illuminate the small corners of a garden.

LX_COM13_Market_Spotlight.indd 168

3/21/17 12:24 PM


FIRST MATES THE PIECES: Radiant Double Knitting Ball and Radiant Knitting Ball THE DESIGNER: Janus et Cie FIND IT: janusetcie.com THE INSPIRATION: Taking their cue from the texture of yarn, the Radiant lamps are actually constructed of natural, undyed sandstone and beam from within, capable of casting an enchanting glow without being defined by the space in which they reside. Their versatility encourages a well-lived—and stylish—life among the indoors and outdoors alike, a Janus et Cie trademark.

KNOTS LANDING THE PIECES: Criss Cross Outdoor Pillows in Charcoal (far left) and True Blue, and Mr. Rowe Outdoor Pillow in Green/Blue THE DESIGNER: Alex Mason FIND IT: ferrickmason.com THE INSPIRATION: Perennially cool and distinctly fresh are just a few thoughts that come to mind when dreaming about a Ferrick Mason textile, and the same is certainly true with the hip and artful brand’s inaugural outdoor collection. Thoughtfully picked from their existing indoor line, Criss Cross—a simple doodle reinvented into a perfect coordinate—and Mr. Rowe—a masculine design with a twist that was inspired by a dear friend—are the festive outdoor accents you didn’t know you needed.

LX_COM13_Market_Spotlight.indd 170

NAOMI SANDERS LANDSCAPE DESIGNER NAOMISANDERS.COM

At first sight: Alex Mason’s designs are as thoughtful and elegant as they are fresh and playful. Compared to previous collections, however, these patterns are a little more graphic and handsome, inspired by strong geometry over a more whimsical, natural form. As a landscape designer… These accent pillows appeal to me not only for their ability to complement a wide variety of garden styles—traditional, Zen or modern—but they’d also pair well with other patterns, textures and colors. Though a bit more contemporary and universal in style… Both of these patterns bring the art of Japanese shibori to mind, a style and mood that I’m constantly mindful about integrating into outdoor spaces. I’m wholly attracted to… Gardens that combine structured, architectural form with native, seasonal and wild plantings: I’m moved by landscapes that elevate one’s understanding of the natural process.

3/21/17 11:47 AM


SECOND WIND THE PIECE: Maia Relax Armchair THE DESIGNER: Patricia Urquiola FIND IT: kettal.com THE INSPIRATION: Known for its innovative yet stylish handcrafted designs, Barcelona-based Kettal partners only with the best—Spanish architect and designer Patricia Urquiola included. Urquiola’s Relax armchair, part of her Maia collection for the international brand, is infused with modernity and lightness and breaks new ground on archtypical outdoor furnishings through the use of geometric patterns, high-tech braided fibers and a wide aluminum frame. The result is just as stellar as the collaboration itself: an exploration and reimagining of outdoor furniture to a distinctly chicer level.

MATT WITTMAN & JODY ESTES

ARCHITECT AND LANDSCAPE DESIGNER WITTMAN-ESTES.COM

At first sight… Our initial impression of the Maia Relax armchair is one of weightlessness. The chair’s lightness lends a breezy informality that works to balance its sculptural and prismatic form. With a minimal and functional spirit… The chair nevertheless appears comfortable—and almost playful. Like Kettal… We err toward clean, crisp designs that complement modern architecture, so we appreciate how Patricia Urquiola and the brand are mindful of tradition—in both form and material—but smart in cleverly creating fresh pieces that adhere to today’s needs and experiences. On the job: We also enjoy designing spaces that are functional and not overly complicated; we anticipate the movement of the people in it and, rather than attempting to control it, we work with that natural movement and flow. At home: We see this piece living at a tropical resort or in a modern patio setting—not overly structured but intentional, with an abundance of comfort and coolness.

TIGHT ROPE THE PIECE: Custom Plain Weave Shore Rug THE DESIGNER: Louie Rigano and Gil Muller FIND IT: shorerugs.com THE INSPIRATION: London design duo Louie Rigano and Gil Muller consider it their mission to create inspired designs that are as beautiful as they are functional. Their brainchild, Shore Rugs, breaks free from the traditional rug vernacular by using custom-engineered silicone cords to fashion products with a high domestic appeal, indoors and out. Combine that allure with their penchant for brilliant color palettes, like this custom ombre design, and prepare to experience, visually and tangibly, a rug like no other.

RYAN KETTELKAMP LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT KETTELKAMP2.COM

At first sight: I was drawn to the chunky, bold weave of this custom rug. It introduces a profoundly noticeable texture into the piece; you immediately sense substance and durability but the interplay of color introduces an artful playfulness. On the job: I particularly like the idea of contrasts in garden designs—wild and exuberant plantings within a formal layout and areas of shade contrasted with open bright sunny spots in a garden—and routinely stress the importance of good lines, ones that pull you into an outdoor environment and beg you to come and explore. It’s important that a well-conceived garden speak to you in this way. Old and new: Shore Rugs’ use of technologically advanced materials in a way that harks back to the long tradition of handwork is admirable. The actual material also communicates an ease of maintenance, which is key for the outdoors. Landscape architecture… Weaves all my interests—science, art, horticulture, craft, design, technology, history and the outdoors—into a cohesive whole, coincidentally not unlike one of these rugs.

JANICE PARKER

LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT JANICEPARKER.COM

At first sight: It’s immediately clear how well-crafted these tables are, and beyond that, they read as extremely chic. Dedon’s lines are always visionary and unique, and the same is true of Lorenza Bozzoli’s work. It’s contemporary and very personal; she doesn’t let functionality sacrifice style. Speaking of functionality… This design is just the right height and you can play with configurations. I also love that the tops are natural trays and have drainage slots—versatile and perfect for all things poolside. Mother Nature and the magic of the outdoors… Drew me to landscape design. The natural world has constant change and life cycles. This made sense to me as a child. Of course, once I was deeply engaged, I wanted to play with all the plants and forms and remake reality. Why not a mountain or a lake where there was none? Visually and viscerally… The tables have a lovely lightness to them, and the fact they have three legs reminds me of Noguchi. The art of craft and the love for craft are what this design is all about.

LX_COM13_Market_Spotlight.indd 173

SEA LEVEL THE PIECE: Brixx Side Table Triangular THE DESIGNER: Lorenza Bozzoli FIND IT: dedon.us THE INSPIRATION: As with all things Dedon and all things Lorenza Bozzoli, the Brixx side table, with its sleek powdercoated aluminum top and natural teak legs, elevates the everyday. The Milanese fashion and furniture expert’s marriage with Dedon, and their fine Italian craftsmanship, is nothing short of a refined and understated match made in heaven—resulting in the Brixx table and its collection’s stunning counterparts.

DROP ANCHOR THE PIECE: Windsor Casual Chair THE DESIGNER: Weatherend Estate Furniture FIND IT: weatherend.com THE INSPIRATION: Over a century ago, landscape architect Hans Heistad began designing outdoor landscapes with complementing furniture for seaside properties along the coast of Maine. Among these dreamy coastal estates was Weatherend, and over a hundred years later, Weatherend Estate Furniture continues to produce stately and sophisticated pieces. Using techniques typically found in yacht building, the heritage brand reimagined the Windsor—a contemporary interpretation of the first outdoor chair introduced to America—which celebrates the seating staple’s rich history and ageless design.

EDMUND HOLLANDER

LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT HOLLANDERDESIGN.COM

At first sight: I admire the subtle maritime aesthetic that Weatherend often applies to their works. There is something that feels particularly “right” about this design and its exceptional craftsmanship. As a landscape architect… I am especially drawn to the style and flexibility of a design. If you’re going to bring something into your home, indoors or out, these two qualities are paramount. On the job: I greatly enjoy collaborating with designers and architects to create beautiful and environmentally appropriate spaces, ones that harmoniously marry the site and the client, and I feel like this chair would be an easy fit for so many atmospheres. At home: The joinery and overall mood of this piece make the Windsor Casual chair the perfect solution for any space craving an elegant yet rugged piece of furniture. To me, it would seem most at home on a deck overlooking the ocean or atop a posh sailboat or yacht.

WHEN MOTHER NATURE IS THE GUEST OF HONOR IN YOUR HOME’S HARDEST-WORKING SPACES, BOUNDARIES BETWEEN INDOORS AND OUT MELT AWAY. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

That sunshine and fresh air are a salve for many of life’s ailments is hardly a secret. After all, spending time outdoors is linked to both increased vitamin D production and feelings of happiness. It’s no wonder, then, that designers are bringing nature into the home’s busiest rooms. The latest retractable glass walls and service-style windows blur the line between interior and exterior, providing an often-needed calming connection to the outside world. Whether you’re blessed with a temperate climate yearround, as in Sydney, where this kitchen is located, or you’re forced to make the most of a limited run of good weather, we hope you’ll find inspiration in the following pages. 172 / LUXESOURCE.COM

Sydneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Smart Design Studio created this open-air kitchen as part of a modern addition to a Federal-style house. Walls of windows and retractable glass doors bring in an abundance of light, which a mirrored backsplash further reflects. As a result, the narrow space feels much larger than it is.

SMART DESIGN STUDIO Blame it on the mild weather Down Under, but one thingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for certain when it comes to Australian design: No one does indoor-outdoor spaces quite like the Aussies. Here, interior designer Victoria Judge of Sydneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Smart Design Studio walks us through this airy minimalist kitchen. smartdesignstudio.com Share your vision. Our climate is conducive to an outdoor lifestyle, and this house facilitates exactly that. The streamlined design features integrated appliances where possible, and the dining table and island are combined to maximize open space. Black-stained timber joinery extends beyond the kitchen to an outdoor eating area.

How much was light a factor in designing this kitchen? The house is on a very narrow plot and surrounded by tall buildings to the south, which forms a kind of cavern, so large windows were important for bringing light into the room. By providing a double-height space in the rear we were able to flood the room in bright light all day long.

What are some tricks for a seamless indoor-outdoor space? Folding doors are great, allowing rooms to fully open to the outdoors. Opting for a continuous floor finish, such as the travertine used here, between indoors and out helps. By reducing the amount of finishes, you can eliminate visual clutter and the division of spaces.

Elegant fine linens and casual alfresco dining generally don’t mix. Enter oilcloth linen: The durable, waterproof material stands up to spills and splashes and makes a pretty placemat to boot, as in the Parentesi (shown here in Sage) from La Gallina Matta. Its unique shape and delicate embroidery prove that practicality and style can go hand in hand. lagallinamatta.it

To transform a Tuscan-style villa into a modern country home, architect Ken Linsteadt relied on an earthy, natural palette and opened up every room to the surrounding Sonoma, California, landscape. Moving the kitchen to the opposite end of the house so it could face the pool terrace created more of a connection to the outside. “The oversize steel-and-glass windows tilt up, providing an expansive view and easy access to the pool, as well as shade over the bar on a sunny day,” he says. kenlinsteadt.com

COOL & CONNECTED For this modern kitchen, designer Julia Treuel opted for a crisp, monochromatic look that wouldn’t compete with the lush greenery in the backyard. She then installed bifold windows and a servery for a seamless connection to the garden. “Not only is it lovely to have fresh air flowing through this zone, but the house feels larger for it,” says Treuel. abbeycollective.com.au

While the bateau-style soaking tub and lively patterned floor command attention in this striking bath in Cape Town, South Africa, the real draw is the scene just outside the French doors. That’s why designer Kim Stephen kept the palette simple.

One look at this lovely bath designed by interiors talent Kim Stephen, and it’s easy to imagine your daily struggle to get out of bed and start your pre-work routine all but disappearing. Opening onto a private hedged garden with mountain views, it’s the perfect spot for luxuriating in the tub and taking in the gorgeous landscape. “With so much greenery just outside the door, I decided to stick to a palette of black and white to keep it serene,” says Stephen. “Bringing some plant life into the space was also important to underscore the connection to nature, and the lushness of a banana palm seemed the perfect tropical touch,” she says. kimstephen.com

SUNLIGHT CAN BECOME AS TACTILE AS ANY MATERIAL IN HOMES MADE FOR INDOOR-OUTDOOR LIVING. WRITTEN BY MONIQUE MCINTOSH

LIGHT FANTASTIC Not an inch of sun exposure is wasted in this living room designed by architect Jonathan Feldman, highlighting views of the propertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sprawling walnut tree ranch located just east of Monterey Bay. 1 / Double Exposure: Offer a different quality of light by varying the window design. In this double-height space, for example, the raw brightness provided by the sliding glass doors on the lower level is tempered by slim blind treatments on the windows above. Skylights also filter more rays overhead. 2 / In Perspective: No need for wall decor here. Make your landscape vistas the center of attention by orienting your furniture toward the spectacular views. In this living room, a leather Roche Bobois sectional facing the glass offers a cozy vantage point. 3 / Take Root: Go a step beyond reclaimed wood and explore other unvarnished materials to introduce more organic qualities, like these undulating walls made with layers of rammed earth. 4 / Sky Scraper: Scale to size with tall architectural accents to carry the eye upward. These slender built-in shelves, sparsely decorated with black-and-white pottery, take full advantage of the elevation.

Waking up to face the dawn becomes much more tempting in this master bedroom and balcony, radiant with warm hues and plush furnishings—all curated by Kendall Wilkinson for a Bay Area home. 1 / Peace of Mind: For a little solitude, add an extension off your bedroom with an enclosed balustrade that provides privacy while allowing you to enjoy the open air. Here, a Paola Lenti sofa from Dzine makes the balcony equally as snug as the interiors. 2 / Shadow Play: Cast a striking outline against the sky with chic fenestration. A modernized French door looks glam with dark Colonial-style grids that offer an unexpected break to the room’s lightness. 3 / Wild Card: Take a brief style departure from your interiors with contrasting statement pieces on your terrace. In an otherwise subdued bedroom, these vivid yellow ottomans and a chair, also by Paola Lenti, contribute a welcome flash of color. 4 / Felt Sense: A little texture on a classic white wall invites an additional dose of dimension in natural light. Covered in milky plaster, the bedroom walls have a linen-like quality that softens the sunshine.

Sustainable American white oak and East Bay sunlight are the only adornments needed for this dining room, created by architect Andrew Mann in collaboration with designer Sherry Williamson as an ode to green living. 1 / No Boundaries: A deck becomes so much more when constructed as an architectural extension of your interiors. Built with complementary warm machiche wood, this terrace stands at the same elevation as the dining room, allowing for a sense of uninterrupted movement. 2 / Take Cover: Wrapping the ceilings and floors in the same stylish materials as the surrounding walls—done stunningly here in FSC-certified oak—provides a seamless way to preserve the interior’s loftiness. 3 / Common Touch: Underscore interesting surfaces in your decor to take full advantage of the natural light, where every crevice can be appreciated, like this amber-hued mica-and-glass pendant by Adam Kurtzman and weather-worn RH dining table. 4 / Back to Basics: Less is more in door design when devising transitions. Fashioned with demure draperies that easily gather to the side, the tall glass-paned doors continue the effortless flow onto the patio.

AMERICAN IDYLL Sipping rosĂŠ on the patio, stealing a nap in a hammock, dining alfresco under the starsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;summer provides no shortage of opportunities for simple pleasures. Thanks to the ever-evolving concept of outdoor living, too, warm weather also brings with it more thoughtfully designed spaces to experience those pleasures. Over the last several years, designers have embraced nature in a big way, creating fully loaded outdoor family rooms, elaborate fire pits and wow-worthy pools. Even the once-humble pool house has undergone a dramatic change from utilitarian changing spot to a luxurious destination in itself, as witnessed in this elegant East Hampton, New York, property by Dan Scotti Design.

While it’s probably tempting for landscape architects to cover the countryside in vibrant colors, sometimes a more restricted palette is needed. For this Dutch-inspired house in New Canaan, Connecticut, for example, Doyle Herman Design Associates opted for a more earthy, subdued scheme. “Oversize bluestone leads from the kitchen to the dining terrace, while linear gestures of ornamental grasses and hedges of boxwoods play off the contemporary style of this modern farmhouse,” says principal designer Kathryn Herman. dhda.com

To honor that history, Los Angeles-based Elysian Landscapes brought a dose of retro glamour to the backyard of a 1959 glass-and-concrete house by creating this showstopper of a fire pit. “The generous banquette was once a low concrete block wall hidden behind a hedge of bamboo, so we increased the height of the wall and hid speakers in the plantings,” says designer Judy Kameon. “Now, it’s a perfect setting for enjoying cool evenings.” Bring on the s’mores… and martinis! elysianlandscapes.com

Thinking outside of the box takes on a new meaning when you actually punch a hole in that box, which is exactly what Australian designer Carole Whiting did to create this cozy nook. By opening up a wall in the living room to make a niche that’s both window and daybed, Whiting invited more light into the space and gave the eventual inhabitants the option of being simultaneously inside and out. “To contrast with the soft, neutral palette indoors, we made the bed black, which further unifies it with the exterior,” says Whiting. whitingarchitects.com

SWING TIME

Perhaps no other perch conveys a playful Bohemian vibe quite like a hanging swing chair. The original bamboo version of this porch staple was designed by Giovanni Travasa in 1958, but the style really caught on in the freewheeling ’60s and ’70s when natural materials were all the rage. Tidelli’s new Painho swing here, designed by Rosenbaum e o Fetiche, is made with nautical rope and high-grade aluminum for indoor or outdoor use and comes in an impressive array of summertime colors—52 to be exact. tidelli.com

LOOKING GLASS

Minimalist architecture demands clean lines, so it’s no wonder the latest technological advancements in glass walls allow for bigger expanses and slimmer frames and stiles. Cero, the newest floor-to-ceiling sliding wall system from NanaWall, boasts the thinnest profile yet, giving way to light-filled spaces that challenge the conventional notions of boundaries between indoors and out. nanawall.com

A killer view, of course—like the one at this Healdsburg, California, family ranch designed by Ali Davin of San Francisco-based firm Jute. “To draw the eye outside, we intentionally kept the furnishings sparse so they wouldn’t distract from the scenery,” she says. “The wood ceiling, concrete walls, stone floors, metal chairs and linen curtains keep the look rustic and understated, while Rose Uniacke’s dining table made of pippy oak helps anchor the space and tie it to the natural landscape.” jutehome.com

Through a high standard of environmental stewardship, Humboldt Redwood manages productive forestlands while operating efficient manufacturing and distribution facilities. In all it does, the company employs an awareness of high-quality products and the customer’s needs to deliver the premier product from which it gets its name—redwood. Humboldt Redwood lumber and timbers are two of the most environmentally friendly building materials available for outdoor living projects. They are renewable, recyclable, biodegradable and sourced from Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified forestlands (FSC-C005200). “A freestanding redwood timber shade structure should last 40 years or more,” says Jessica Hewitt, Humboldt Redwood’s director of marketing. “The service life of a well-constructed redwood deck is generally 20 to 30 years.”

TERRA OUTDOOR LIVING Mill Valley | California | 415.331.1603 | terraoutdoorliving.com

Fourteen years ago, after purchasing a home in Mill Valley, Steve Keihner was surprised by the expense associated with high-quality outdoor furniture. After months of searching, he found a company that was direct importing beautifully crafted outdoor furniture at reasonable prices. Keihner was so thrilled by the business that he decided to buy it. Today, that company is Terra Outdoor Living. “I have spent the last 13 years traveling the world, sourcing furniture from the best manufacturers around the globe,” he says. “After a long journey, I can truly say we’ve found the balance between extraordinary design, quality and value.” Terra’s new concrete tables check each of these boxes and are some of Keihner’s personal favorites. “It took almost two years, but we finally sourced an Australian company that creates the lightest and strongest masonry tables in the industry,” he says. “The beautiful and natural aesthetic of raw concrete is achieved, but at a fraction of the weight.”

We source the finest materials and designs, price them affordably and deliver in days, not weeks.

THE RENAISSANCE OF COLOR “Although earth tones continue to dominate as the trending choice for outdoor furniture and cushions, customers are reawakening outdoor living spaces with pillows and accessories in vibrant colors, such as ginkgo, indigo and citron,” Keihner says. “New, bold patterns and colors provide a fresh look and can change with the seasons and styles.”

T

he sublimely understated home that architect Jess Field and designer Erin Martin recently composed in Napa Valley appears like a piece of thread—one made of wood, metal, glass and plaster—that’s woven into the landscape, joining vineyard terrain to the north and a forested setting to the south. “My starting point is always to figure out how I can attune a building to the land with as much subtlety and nuance as possible,” says Field, who worked with his father and firm cofounder, Stan Field, on the initial siting of the project. In this case, his effort yielded a string of three simple rectangular forms that display contemporary and agrarian aesthetics and appear as if they’ve grown up out of the intersection between two distinct topographies. As Martin explains, this residence is not another modern farmhouse. “It’s something that couldn’t be found just anywhere,” the designer says. “When you’re standing out there between the vineyards and the trees and you’re surrounded by that much beauty, you realize you don’t need much more than what’s there naturally.”

When Field and Martin’s clients—a husband who works in finance and a wife who focused on raising the couple’s now-grown six children—decided to build a second home in Napa Valley, it was because they wanted a different living experience than the one they currently have in the suburban Midwest; they wanted something that would let them be closer to nature. “I grew up in an agrarian environment, and I love the outdoors,” the husband says. “We also love wine,” the wife adds. “Developing a small vineyard is something we’ve always wanted to do.” The couple searched and found a property that sits almost 1,700 feet above the valley on Howell Mountain. Before they built their house, they planted their vineyard with cabernet sauvignon grapes and named it Sentinel Ridge, a tribute to a natural crest that marks their lot. “Very special to the site is this long and narrow plateau that overlooks the valley,” Field says. “We found subterranean rock along the brow of the shelf, and we put the house along that brow.”

Architect Jess Field situated a Napa Valley residence at the intersection of vineyard terrain to the north and forested land to the south for a Midwestern couple who had always dreamed of developing a small vineyard in Northern California.

In the same way the residence seems to thread the landscape, a continuous breezeway threads the buildings. “There’s a timber-and-steel colonnade that runs from the outside to the inside and is a circulation spine that ties the structures together,” Field says. The first and most western building holds the kitchen, the living area and the master suite; the center building houses the main dining room and the wine cellar; while the last and most eastern building features three guest suites. All three structures are clad with reclaimed Douglas fir marked by rich brown and silver tones. “We found boards from an 80-year-old barn in northern Idaho,” says Field, who also employed gabled roofs made of standing seam metal and plaster walls with a parchment paper-like finish that bookend each of the

LX_SF15_HOM_Martin_16.indd 222

buildings. “The wood and metal aren’t necessarily refined materials, but there was such attention to detail in the way we had the materials come together that the result is something extraordinary,” says builder Paul Niles, who managed construction for the project. When it came to the interiors, Martin, too, was inspired by Napa Valley’s epic landscape. “I usually keep things really simple and do all white, but I wanted to use green here because it’s so green outside,” she says. “Bringing that color in was just another way of working off what exists there in nature.” The designer, who collaborated with project manager Maria Torres, outfitted the open-plan living area with large hunter-green pendants—customized from vintage steel ocean buoys—and covered the custom

sofa with a dark blue-green cotton-linen fabric. “It will hide a ton of red wine stains,” she says. For Martin, keeping the focus on the landscape also meant using spare furnishings. In the dining room, she arranged only three elements: a custom table, steel-and-leather chairs and more pendants made from buoys. “The table is built on a train carriage,” Martin says. “There are actual train tracks cast into the concrete floor so it can roll over to the side and act as a serving or tasting table, or it can stay in the center and be used for dining.” Indeed, the home connects strongly to the outdoors, and relates to the area’s architectural vernacular, which includes historic farm buildings. “But it was also important that the residence be detailed in a very clean, crisp way that shows restraint and timelessness,” Field says. Sharp detailing also informed the landscape design that husband-andwife duo Dave and Nancy Roche created for the home’s surroundings. “There are native boulders, gravel paths and a rustic wood bench along one side of the large central terrace,” Dave Roche says. “In the front, or on the vineyard side,” Nancy Roche adds, “we planted native coffee berry, Lindheimer’s muhly and three varieties of manzanita that connect the buildings to the dark green forest.” That strong connection to the land, established by the combined efforts of the entire team, delivered exactly what the clients had hoped for: “When we’re at home in Napa Valley, we don’t feel like we’re inside a structure,” the husband says. “We feel more like we’re part of nature.”

F

rom the moment designer Jeff Schlarb arrived on the site of his clients’ wine country home— set against a verdant hillside that unfolds into sweeping vistas—his wheels started turning with ideas for patterns and materials that would complement the organic setting. The home was under construction, but it’s modern yet rustic aesthetic had been firmly established, and the designer aimed to underscore that feeling with a sense of refinement for the interiors. “It was important, however, to avoid anything fussy, and I didn’t want to pick things that were expected,” he says. “The clients wanted their home to be comfortable and to agree with their casual lifestyle in Sonoma.” And although it was important for the design to have an air of ease, getting there would be a demanding process. “It takes many layers of work to make something look effortless,” Schlarb says. That thoughtful and rigorous approach was shared by the entire design team in bringing together a singular home for their clients: a British couple with three grown daughters. The house had been started on a 16-acre parcel about 1,000 feet above the town of Sonoma, where the behindthe-scenes planning began as soon as architect Michael Guthrie stepped on the property. “During my first visit I always leave with components from the site, like a rock or some dried-out leaves,” he says of his hands-on approach to culling inspiration. “It’s especially important

LX_SF16_HOM_Schlarb_14.indd 234

in a semi-remote locale such as this one where there are no contextual influences like there would be in town, so the landscape provides the inspiration.” With the seeds planted for the home’s materiality, Guthrie, who designed the house in tandem with project manager Ha Nguyen, looked to the area’s farmhouse vernacular to provide further influence. Inspired by the simple forms of those utilitarian buildings, the duo designed a long U-shape structure anchored by an open central space that holds the kitchen, living and dining areas. To crown the house, they introduced a metal roof, typical of agricultural buildings, in a crisp prefinished dark bronze to complement the cedar siding, which was stained to look slightly aged. “The owners wanted something that related to the wine country, so we included simple gables for a rustic modern look,” Guthrie says. The structure was also outfitted with metal-frame windows and a bifold door that runs one whole length of the house, opening it up completely to the outdoors. Playing off the façade’s dissolving boundary, the architectural duo rooted the opposite side of the structure with a wall made of local stone, which was selected to resemble those early rocks found on-site. The process of finding the precise type of look they envisioned for the wall took some time. “Michael had the masons put up sample after sample until he found one that was exactly right,” builder Jon Reiter says.

The architectural team of Michael Guthrie and Ha Nguyen designed a Sonoma home with openings on either side to allow for views from the auto court through the house to the backyard and the view beyond. Dave and Nancy Roche designed the landscape.

Surrounding the structure, Guthrie and Nguyen established a framework for an auto court, swimming pool and a series of outdoor rooms before handing the baton to the husband-and-wife landscape team of Dave and Nancy Roche. “The site was covered with beautiful rock outcroppings that we were eager to preserve and highlight,” Nancy Roche says. “We stockpiled boulders during construction and placed them in many locations, including outside the master bedroom. We also created a gravel terrace there with succulents embedded at the base of the rocks that highlight the native ones.” The property’s existing trees were thoughtfully integrated and augmented as well. “We kept and worked around native oaks and manzanitas,” Dave Roche says, “and we introduced the two mature olive trees that frame the pool.” As the structure was taking shape, the owners initiated the search for a designer. “While we were building, we were also searching for a flat and happened on a place in Nob Hill designed by Jeff,” the wife says. “We really liked his style of blending old and new.” Schlarb kept that contemporary-classic approach as he appointed the main public areas. To help define the living area within the open space, the designer chose a textured wool rug as an anchor and paired it with a creamy-hued upholstered sofa and matching armchairs. But he didn’t hesitate to switch things up by adding a timeless leather wingback chair, which he customized by covering the seat cushion with a striped fabric. “It’s a cool version of that classic style of chair,” says the designer, who finished the area with another armchair and a modern stacked-oak coffee table. He kept his selfdescribed “rock ‘n’ roll approach” in the adjacent dining area with a table that is equal parts function and art. The distinctive piece features bog oak in a color gradation that goes from orange to walnut-brown to ebony and back again. All the while, Schlarb’s talent for creating an easy-going style by means of an exacting process shines through. The series of glass orbs that dangle so freely over the dining LUXESOURCE.COM / 237

table, for example, required endless hours of planning to thread the various components around and through the metal ceiling rods to get their position precisely right. And determining the perfect materials for the living area fireplace was also carefully thought through. “We wanted it to be industrial but not loft-style industrial,” explains Schlarb, who finally settled on a black steel monolith accented with just enough marble to make it luxurious and current. On the opposite side of the room, he offset the kitchen’s walnut cabinetry with an ultra-thin Neolith waterfall island with a mitered edge. For color, the wife requested “neutral shades that were sympathetic to the environment,” recalls Schlarb, so he selected items like the soft cream-and-brown tweed-like outdoor fabric for the dining area chairs and a muted wooland-bamboo-silk rug for the master bedroom to complement the stone outcroppings beyond. “Jeff’s use of textiles and colors pulled everything together,” the wife says. “And thanks to our team, the entire house feels anchored to the landscape with a continuous flow to the outdoors.”

Custom furniture maker Gabriel Statsky works on a dining table that he’s crafting from reclaimed white oak. The wood, originally the floor joists of an 1895 Kentucky barn, will be darkened by fuming and finished with a hard-wax oil by Rubio Monocoat.

E

ven by California standards, the surfing town of Santa Cruz is recognized for its laid-back feel, thanks in part to its location along the Pacific Ocean within a landscape dotted with towering redwoods. With its cathedral-like forests and nearby mountains, the inspiring locale is a fitting setting for custom furniture maker Gabriel Statsky, known for coaxing wood—either reclaimed white oak, FSC-certified American hardwoods or locally sourced species—into heirloom-quality pieces. “I feel an obligation to the tree, to the material,” says Statsky, who recently completed one of his favorite pieces to date—a massive dining table made of a thick slab of wood from a centuriesold Goliath that fell in Big Sur. “It’s important for me to know that I did the best I could with it.” Although he earned an industrial technology degree and minored in three-dimensional art at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Statsky mostly taught himself his craft by apprenticing in shops throughout the West, reading piles of books and enduring plenty of trial and error along the way. “There could have been easier ways to learn, but it was a really valuable experience for me to figure it out in a vacuum,” says the craftsman, who started his business 19 years ago. “It was a slow and laborious process, but I have a lot of confidence now. There isn’t much that I can’t make.” Figuring out how to craft one of his intricate pieces—a trio of tables that connect to form a 24-foot-long dining table with handmade wheels, for example, or a pair of sofas that link up to create a bed—is deeply satisfying for Statsky. LUXESOURCE.COM / 249

LX_SF16_SM_Statsky.indd 249

4/5/17 3:19 PM


Statsky keeps experimental and personal projects around his Santa Cruz workshop, including a hollow geometric shape (above, right), which he wrapped with shop-sawn reclaimed oak veneers, and a sculptural walnut inprogress table (opposite).

“My clients often want more than one function for a piece, such as storage and mobility,” he explains. “I love solving those challenges.” Equally satisfying but in a different way is woodworking’s sheer physicality. For his more sculptural pieces, Statsky will employ an electric grinder to rough out the basic form before shaping the finer details with chisels and traditional carving knives. “I’m kind of a perfectionist,” he says, noting the traditional joinery and custom-formulated stains. “It’s because I have so much respect for the materials.” Although he brings on employees as needed to help with the commissions that keep rolling in, Statsky maintains a very hands-on approach, doing as much of the work as he can himself. Some days that means losing track of time while performing a simple, repetitive task, and other times he’ll put pen to paper to work out a new design. Always eager for the next challenge, Statsky has started kicking around ideas for an entire line of furnishings. “I’m closing in on 20 years, and there’s something about this time that I’m embracing,” he says. “I want to learn as much as I can and build as many cool things as possible.”

TREE LINES A HILLSIDE HOUSE IN PORTOLA VALLEY FINDS ITS CONNECTION TO NATURE.

Right: In renovating a couple’s home in Portola Valley, architect Malcolm Davis expanded a guesthouse on the property to incorporate a sitting area and a second-floor artist’s studio, which connects to the main house with a bridge. Opposite: Davis reworked the lower level of the main house to include a light-filled family room. Designer Lori Yeomans appointed the space with an Eero Saarinen table by Knoll and Bruno Hansen chairs. The custom walnut-and-steel bench is from Original Timber Co.

A

s they ascended a forested hillside and then entered the driveway of a prospective home in Portola Valley, an active couple—cyclists and nature lovers—were transfixed by the magical scenery. “You could see the expansive western vistas,” says one half of the pair, “and my wife said, ‘I don’t care what’s here. I just need to see these views.’ So we were sold before we even really saw the house.” As it turns out, the home also had its charms, with its midcentury modern style and relatively open layout, but it didn’t take advantage of the views afforded by its hillside perch and sported mismatched renovations from previous owners. After living in the residence for a few years, the couple decided to make some changes. Preferring to renovate the house rather than raze it and start from scratch, they turned to architect Malcolm Davis to visually tie it together and create a functional abode that would

match their lifestyle. “If I can alter a home and still make it work, it’s like retelling a story,” Davis says. “It’s informed by other voices and periods, making it a richer experience.” Davis started by reworking the floor plan and opening up the house to the outdoors. “When you walked in, there was a clutter of decks blocking your view from the entry,” he says. “There were two dining spaces next to each other and smaller windows that looked out to the biggest view.” Davis addressed all those issues and more, starting on the upper main level of the house, where he removed posts from the open kitchen, living and dining areas to create a better physical and visual flow. He then expanded the existing kitchen along the home’s west side, positioning a large island in place of one of the previous dining areas. He added a length of cabinets beneath a row of windows and flanked the stove with pocket doors that access a large pantry. Near the open kitchen in the dining area, the

The dining area features a custom walnut table crafted by Gianni Corvasce Restoration encircled with vintage Kai Kristiansen dining chairs from Chris Howard Antiques & Modern; the 1970s brass-and-Lucite chandelier is by Gaetano Sciolari. The space opens through sliding doors by Fleetwood Windows & Doors to a spacious new balcony.

Davis designed the kitchen with a pantryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which runs the width of the space and has two entrancesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to provide essential storage. Oak engineered flooring, supplied and installed by The Wood Floor Company, offers a warm texture.

architect swapped corner walls for retractable glass doors and designed a cantilevered balcony that wraps three sides of the room. “The dining room is like a glass porch that acts as both the indoor and outdoor dining space,” Davis says. “It can be shuttered, screened or completely open.” A pitched ceiling with exposed beams and metal trusses crowns the dining area and connecting living area for a cohesive and airy feel. The updates continued downstairs, where Davis dropped the floor and combined what were the master bedroom and a den into one spacious family room. The ceiling now rises to more than 10 feet, and windows on three sides flood the space with light. “Even though you’re on a lower floor, you’re getting as much light as possible,” the homeowner says. As the master bedroom was repurposed, the couple— who were then soon-to-be moms—wanted to relocate the master next to the two existing bedrooms, one of which would become their daughter’s room, so they’d all be on one level. “My wife had the idea to move the master suite up to the other side of the house, and Malcolm ran with

it and made it even better,” the homeowner says. The architect added a new wing on the east side, adjacent to the existing bedrooms, and capped the room with a shed roof. “Kicking that roofline up gives you a view up to the sky and a feeling of openness,” Davis explains. The couple’s visitors, too, got upgraded arrangements. Davis expanded the detached one-room guesthouse by adding a sitting room, dubbed the lanai, on the ground level. He then designed an artist’s studio on the top floor, which is connected by a bridge to the main house. “The bridge plays up the idea of this art studio being removed and special,” says the architect, who also added a large deck off the guesthouse to incorporate several native live oaks. “We worked around the existing site and the oak trees,” says the project’s builder, Steve Nicholls. Landscape designer Randy McDannell, who was working through his firm, RS McDannell Exterior & Landscape, at the time of the project, was also respectful of the existing grounds and worked with plants native to the county. “The goal was to replant the garden areas as naturally as possible,” he says.

In the lower-level family room, a Line bar by Nathan Yong from Design Within Reach stands against one wall, while a circa-1875 Oushak rug from San Francisco Rug Gallery grounds the space. The bronze anodized windows are by Fleetwood Windows & Doors.

Davis expanded the existing guesthouse to include a sitting area, called the lanai. Yeomans furnished the space with a down-filled Grotto sofa and acacia coffee table, both by Blu Dot, and Diamond chairs by Harry Bertoia from Hive in Portland, Oregon. The rug is by Chilewich.

The roof and exterior of the guesthouse are clad with Cor-Ten corrugated steel, installed by Bill Hamilton Roofing, to evoke the area’s agricultural buildings. A bridge connecting the building to the main house was fabricated by Bob’s Iron. The property’s new landscaping was designed by Randy McDannell and installed by Elements Landscape.

While Davis clad the exterior of the main house with stucco and cedar burned in a shou sugi ban technique, he sheathed the guesthouse’s simple form with Cor-Ten corrugated steel. Inside the buildings, warm oak and Masonite floors, along with white walls, create a clean look. The couple’s designer, Lori Yeomans, chose furnishings within a muted palette to complement the restrained aesthetic. “We didn’t want the interiors to overwhelm the views,” Yeomans says. Given the homeowners’ appreciation of midcentury modern style, the designer selected pieces such as a 1950s tête-à-tête sofa in the living area. “It’s a two-sided piece, so you can sit on one side and speak to somebody in the living area, or sit on the other side and look at that beautiful vista,” says the designer, who paired the piece with Warren Platner side chairs. A Gaetano Sciolari light fixture and vintage chairs carry the aesthetic into the adjacent dining area. “We didn’t overload the house with furniture,” she says. “We wanted every piece to stand alone. It’s very calming.” That calmness infiltrates every aspect of the home. “They’re unpretentious people, and they wanted a subtlety of materials,” Davis says of the owners. “They wanted something quiet that blended with the landscape, like the local barns and sheds. This design was about opening the house up to nature, so you’re just looking out at this big valley and a sea of trees.” LUXESOURCE.COM / 263

OWEN SIGNATURE HOMES

One look at Owen Signature Homes’ portfolio conveys a particular attention to quality. From Mediterranean mansions to Shingle-style masterpieces, the firm’s range of work is impressive, made even more so by the grade of execution obvious in every photo. Inspired by years of working at construction sites alongside his father, Bob Owen knew early on where his ambitions lay. Today the president of his namesake company, Bob—along with vice president Shawn Owen and head of operations Robin Maharay—leads a team of expert designers, project managers, superintendents and support staff. Considering a project successful only when it exceeds expectations and is resolved on budget and on time, Bob and his team have become known throughout the Bay Area for custom, yet consistently timeless, structures. “Our ultimate goal within the design-build process is to integrate our clients’ visions, desires and dreams into our highly valued, collaborative approach,” Bob says. “Working with the homeowner as we create their dream home is what I enjoy most about my job, and it is rewarding to see their happiness and gratitude expressed as a project ends.” Along with client satisfaction, creative fulfillment and the joy of working with an excellent team, Bob credits the involvement and appreciation from the community as a gratifying aspect of the trade. "The community is always aware of our projects and looks forward to watching our building process through to completion,” he says. “While each home we build is unique, we are recognized for a sense of balance in which all elements of the home blend effortlessly.”

A NIGHT FOR PRESERVATION

PHOTOGRAPHY BY TARA BLASKA PHOTOGRAPHY

During Modernism Week in Palm Springs, California, Luxe Interiors + Design celebrated A Night for Preservation with Save Iconic Architecture (SIA Projects). Founded by Los Angeles-based design duo Ron Woodson and Jaime Rummerfield of Woodson & Rummerfield’s House of Design, SIA Projects champions the fight to preserve significant architecture as art and aims to protect, preserve, educate and celebrate architectural integrity and cultural heritage. On February 19th, over 150 design and style influencers descended upon the architecturally significant Hotel Lautner, designed by midcentury pioneer John Lautner, to celebrate SIA’s mission to preserve iconic architecture and design. Guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres by Liquid Catering and creative cocktails by buzzbox. Coyote and iBBQ prepared and served specialty meats and grilled vegetables from their exquisite grills, and Jenn-Air kept the party buzzing with espresso samples from its state-of-the-art kitchen. Nourison, York Wallcoverings and Jenn-Air provided silent auction items benefiting SIA Projects, and support for the organization was also extended by Snyder Diamond, Robert Allen, S. Harris, Theodore Alexander, Diane James and the gracious hosts at Hotel Lautner.
