When a couple was looking to update their 1960s house in Brentwood, California, they didn't have to look far for help. Their daughters, who make up the Los Angeles- and New York-based design collective Mass Studio, took to the task. Taking inspiration from L.A.'s midcentury modern masters, including A. Quincy Jones, daughters Safura, Sanam, and Laylee helped create a more efficient space that shows off a varied art collection and lets light stream in from as many angles as possible.

The righthand building, which houses two bedrooms, originally had three separate roof structures.

In the yard, Mass Studio refreshed the area around the pool, creating comfortable spaces for lounging.

The master bathroom is lined with Grey Haisa stone tiles.
