Westridge Residence

While also capturing 270-degree views of downtown Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean, this massive foundation-up renovation and second-story addition floods the once-dark interior with natural light and creates indoor-outdoor environments throughout. Floor to ceiling windows combine with natural ipe decks and rooftop rock gardens to extend view corridors and habitable areas at the south and west elevations. The lifted ceiling and custom two-sided stone fireplace create a continuous great room between the living and dining areas and main garden. The newly-added second story offers a separated haven for extended family, including mini-kitchen and secondary family room. Light-colored, beach-inspired materials such as white-washed oak floors, white stone, teak millwork, and ocean-toned glass tiles transform the home into a tranquil, airy Southern California retreat.
