DN Residence

On a sloping 13,700 square foot lot, the design intent of this project was to craft a village of stone masses behind a quiet, landscaped wall.  From the curb, the facade feels both understated and timeless - a rooted monument from a time long gone. Yet its essence is communal. Inspired by mediterranean medinas, it is an experience that feels solitary and shared, a retreat and a relic.

Behind the front door, a sprawling sanctuary unfolds organized around large outdoor living spaces.  Its eroded beauty invites visitors to become immersed in the lush landscaping and serene stone corridors. Leveraging a minimal material palette, the home creates its own transformative context with a deeply rooted connection to nature.
