Two office spaces serve as private think tanks for the residents of McClendon Residence. For her, StudioMET Architects designed a nook near the kitchen with a sliding panel that subtly closes the space when necessary. His is a more traditional room-sized study, and an adjacent full bathroom allows it to be used as an overflow bedroom.
The home is surrounded by a modern wooden fence that matches the cedar plank siding found on the second floor of the home.
At night, the windows and second floor patio make the building glow.
The family often spends evenings in front of the fire pit on the outdoor patio on the second floor.
One of the bathrooms on the second floor contrasts crisp white tile on the walls with geometric blue tile on the floor.
The master bedroom faces the street. Three dramatic arched windows at the front of the house fill the interior with light.
The second floor is flooded with light; windows line the common corridor spaces.
Wide-planked white oak wood flooring is echoed in both the wooden dining table and the floating wood treads of the stairs leading to the second floor.
The kitchen is kept light and bright by multiple windows and a sliding glass door, as well as white countertops and a white tile backsplash. The gray cabinets are painted in Benjamin Moore “Kendall Charcoal” paint in semi-gloss finish; the cabinet pulls are “Bowman” hardware by Rejuvenation in Oil Rubbed Bronze finish; and the wood shelves are solid live-edge oak with concealed brackets.
The dining area, stair, and living area are all open, allowing for strong sightlines across the ground floor.
The main living space on the ground floor is located directly off the front door. It has a long horizontal window on two sides. The custom wood door is painted in Farrow & Ball “Pitch Black” with Emtek “Davos Tubular Marmont" mortise hardware and a US Black finish.
The kitchen is open, with a large island and white countertop.
The staircase is made from wood and metal, tying together other simple materials found throughout the home. The white oak is echoed by the flooring of the ground floor, while the black oxide finish reflects the dark bronze finish of the doors and windows.
A custom steel and Douglas fir wood trellis provides some relief from the strong California sun, which bounces off the white walls. The trellis is stained with a custom color.
The building's crisp, white facade nods to the neighboring white stucco homes that were constructed in the 1920s and 1930s. The elongated arched windows give the exterior a 1920s Art Deco feel.
The flexible floor plan caters to the clients’ love of entertaining. This private study, for instance, can be easily converted into a bedroom.
