The New Century Modern Residence bridges past and present with simple volumes and a restrained palette of stone, stucco, and wood. At the street, with its flat roofs, clerestory windows, and asymmetrical front façade, the home takes cues from the mid century modern houses in the neighborhood.
Inside, form and function collide, as uncomplicated living, dining, and kitchen areas are bathed in natural light from clerestory windows. A sliding wall opens up to a semi-private front courtyard, extending the living space. A roof deck offers more opportunities to experience the view and reinforces the indoor/outdoor character that the clients’ way of life calls for.
