It is a remodel project os a one-story estate located along the scenic Mulholland Drive in the hills of Bel-Air, Los Angeles, California, United States of America. Stoneridge Residence is renovated by Assembledge+ and it has 11,781 SF in size. The goal of the renovation is to reconnect the residence with its site and a second-floor addition is also created to this residence.
This residence sits on a uniquely perched site overlooking the San Fernando Valley. Through a comprehensive landscaping effort and large restructured openings, the architect tries to reconnect the residence with its site. With the native vegetation and stunning view, the back yard focal piece is the Olympic-sized infinity-edge pool and Barragan. This Barragan is inspired by a poured-in-place cantilevered concrete water fountain.
The second-floor addition unifies the building, looking out onto the back yard and San Fernando Valley. This addition is made of a large mass of brick-faced forms. Retaining and celebrating the original exterior is one of the design goals, including complement it with large expanses of glass and dark steel support elements. This exterior is also carefully integrated with the existing brick clad volumes to create a unified and dynamic composition.
The interiors are affiliated with a focus on stone materials and elemental wood. The ground floor consists of an appointed home theater, a family room, and a large working kitchen. There is a custom-designed rough-sawn lumber staircase with a rippling and custom-molded wall. This staircase can give a fabric curtain illusion, leading to the upper floor. This upper floor is reserved for an open-flowing 2100-square-feet master bedroom suite and guest bedrooms.
