The Whipple Russell Architecture Office recently completed the magnificent Laurel Way Modern Home Project in Beverly Hills, California. For the creation of the Laurel Way House, the architect was inspired by a design of the interior space of his own – each room and space must be like a jewelry box – with an individualized, very functional interior design and focused on singular sound experience. We recognize the architect’s signature in every detail – the natural stone cladding that mixes rough and smooth stone, the solid wood panels alongside the glass panels, reflecting the water.
The first impression you get when you enter the house is the feeling of lightness, the illusion that the walls float because everything is connected to the outside. The other concept of the designer is the symmetry between beams, support panels, and tiles. Another important detail, the walls do not reach the ceiling, there is always an open space that contributes to the general feeling of lightness and flutter. This organization of space is both vertical and horizontal, while curved or moving shapes are found in greenery and around the house with water channels. The bedrooms, the dining room, and the living room are presented in chocolate and cream-white colors, highlighted by dark wenge wood coverings. Everywhere, all the elements are perfectly cut and aligned. Admire this modern house of spacious and floating architecture.
