Located in Studio City, Los Angeles, California, Oakdell Residence is a residential project of a house remodel and addition. Designed by Assembledge+ with 5,755 SF in size, this existing 1960’s mid-century home has a minimalist palette made of stone to echo the existing home qualities.
This awesome house is nestled in the hills of the Fryman Canyon Estates area. It is a project of a remodel and an addition to an existing mid-century home built-in 1960. There is a meandering path of concrete panels in the middle of landscaping and decomposing granite, leading to the house’s entry foyer.
The entry foyer consists of a frameless glass wall and floatable four windows. On either side, the sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows give a sense of transparency. These doors and windows also can bring in ample light and extending the living area of the residence into the awesome surrounding landscape.
The kitchen, dining, and living areas are connected by zig-zag-sliding doors that open to the house garden, featuring a pool shaded by broad roof overhangs. These overhangs mitigate sun exposure well at the full-height window walls. adjacent to the kitchen, the family room is dropped down a few steps that separated yet seamlessly connected with the rest of the house’s main floor.
The minimalist palette of this house is made of stone while plaster can echo the existing home quality. This awesome modern house is also designed with a thin roof plane that keeps with the sensibility of the mid-century horizontal of the house.
