Rockefeller Partners Architects have designed a home in Mandeville Canyon, a small community in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, California.
This custom residence (10,000 sq ft) is inspired as much by its unique setting as the client’s lifestyle. Due to the irregular shape of the site, which includes a small grove of eucalyptus and pine trees, only one of the 3.5 acres is buildable land.
To maximize the views, the house was split into two wings – north and south – which turn away from the motor court to face an expansive lawn and the surrounding canyon views.
Los Angeles-based design/builder Steve Lazar has designed and built in 2009 this contemporary home for his own family in Manhattan Beach.
According to Contemporist, the entire three-story structure is comprised of stained and polished Mangaris wood, and the immediate impression is that the visitor has just arrived at an island resort. Inspiration from the islands is apparent throughout his design, as this home would be just as comfortable in Maui as it is in Manhattan Beach. It is well poised to take advantage of coastal breezes from all direction.
Stepping up to the living room, a panoramic view of the shoreline is visible through sliding-glass pocket doors. Contemporary furniture, spaciously placed, adorns the living spaces, creating a fresh, breathing environment. Accents of blue and green appear throughout the home, evoking the seaside surroundings.
The spacious kitchen is comprised of stainless steel appliances with blue/green reflective mosaic tile. A dining room adjoins the kitchen area, and clean custom cabinetry with stainless steel finishes reveal more of Lazar’s attention to craftsmanship.
