Built upon a tight lot among more traditional homes, the blocky stucco façade leaves a lasting impression with its numerous sliding glass doors and black steel columns. Moving into the home’s interior, large primary spaces span the length of the house, and at the rear, sliding glass panels can be pushed aside to create a single, uninterrupted space between interior and exterior. The interior design scheme relies upon high contrast black and white fixtures and furniture set against a heavily grained wood floor. The exterior space at the rear of the house continues the color scheme with a dark wood deck and white stucco privacy walls. A pool borders one side of the yard while a driveway leading to a five car underground garage borders the other. Additional outdoor lounging space can be found on a rooftop deck, accessed by the third level loft, where residents can enjoy views of the city’s botanical gardens.
