From the Architect: "Rob Diaz's latest project is a gorgeous new construction home in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. Rob and his team constructed the four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom home entirely out of Alaskan white cedar and infused the space with high-end materials and designer lighting. It’s truly a masterpiece.

"The 3,171-square-foot, "Scandifornian"-style home beautifully marries Scandinavian hygge with California modernism with its use of natural materials, neutral and earthy palette, and modern accessories and furnishings. The expansive kitchen features Corchia marble countertops, Wolf and Thermador appliances, Watermark plumbing fixtures, custom oak cabinetry, and pocket doors leading out to the impressive outdoor space. The primary suite is a homeowner’s oasis with its sleek wood paneling, oversized walk-in closet, bath with soaking tub, and open-air deck with incredible views of the Griffith Observatory.

"The lush exterior of the home has new drought tolerant landscaping, which was meticulously planned with Filetti limestone paving stones, raised planters, and mature Manzanilla olive trees. The stunning pool area features a wraparound teak deck with plenty of space for entertaining and a long black bottom pool with spa."
