Marmol Radziner Architecture has been completed a residential project for an investment executive and his partner in Beverly Hills, California. TROUSDALE is a single-storey residence that sits atop a terraced lot in the historic Trousdale Estates, embracing the California tradition of indoor-outdoor living.
This residence is designed with a variety of natural materials inside and out and also a forty-foot wall of sliding glass to embrace the California tradition of indoor-outdoor living with warm, modern simplicity. There is a great room that has a fireplace surrounds ledger sandstone while the glass walls of the room open onto the terrace. This room is furnished with Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona chairs and an ottoman by Knoll.
In order to beautify the dining area, a 1962 painting by Richard Pousette-Dart is displayed overlooks a custom-made cerused-oak table and armchairs. There are walnut cabinetry and a granite backsplash and countertops in the kitchen while the terrazzo-paved hallway is decorated with Han-dynasty ceramic vessels and Japanese bamboo baskets.
The strong highlight of this house is the serial renovators and nomadic lovers of California architecture. The garden is carefully composed to reflect the character of the home blue agave and Mexican feather grass. This residence also has a wide, flat roof that extends protectively over the two smaller wings.
