The private residence in Los Angeles, CA commands attention for its polygonal structure and use of bright, warm colors. In addition to the other design elements, reSAWN TIMBER co.’s MURASAKI shou sugi ban charred cypress adds complexity and beauty with it’s pronounced wood grain. The neutral tones of the exterior siding allow the other architectural elements to stand out. Designed by hughesumbanhowar architects, the house is an ode to the firm’s philosophy to be “guided by curiosity and intelligence.”
While the residence is a modern design, it was expertly created to allow the homeowner to enjoy nature. Specifically, the “hanging” porch and open den area connect the beautiful California weather with the comfort of home. Bright accent colors surround the largely neutral tones of the main structure.
