Heid kept the interiors largely raw, which left Lara, Doug, and their interior designer friend, Elaine O’Dwyer, to fill in the blanks with a mix of modern furnishings and family treasures.
The kitchen and dining space sit on the second level, where expansive windows frame the treetops that populate the adjacent hillside.
Rather than adding flooring on top of the slab, the floors throughout are exposed aggregate concrete. The thick concrete slab adds thermal mass, keeping the interior temperature more consistent.
The bespoke dining table is crafted from a fallen silk oak found on the site. The large glazed doors open to the covered patio, extending the living space outside.
A small dining area is located behind the living area. A plaster wall separates the dining and living space from the kitchen. The decision was made to create dividing "panels" rather than full walls to maintain a sense of openness throughout the home and to allow for the layering of the couple’s collection of objects.
One side of the kitchen is graced by Ferdinando Maffii's triptych.
The kitchen island table is custom, weathered with chains and hammers for a rustic look.
“Moments of finer-scale timber detailing are carried through the design, providing a sense of craftsmanship for the builder and furniture maker clients,” note the architects.
The custom kitchen cabinetry and table are made from Douglas fir. The Elefy dining chairs are by Jaime Hayon for &Tradition, and a Tine K Home pendant lamp hangs above. Polished concrete floors run throughout the space.
Emerald cushions from Atelier Furniture line a window seat. The wall light is also Cult Design and the side table is Hay.
Thonet chairs surround a table from Made by Morgen, and the pendant is by Cult Design. The dining room cedes to an exterior terrace.
The view from the kitchen-dining room shows the glassed-in, central garden lightwell, accessible via large sliders.

Where they could reuse original fittings and fixtures, they did, painting Bakelite handles and repurposing industrial, warehouse-style pendants found on-site. “We used whatever we could, and didn’t throw things out. Even the front door that was being thrown out by the neighbor next door (who was also renovating), Rose saved.” says Szczerbicki.
The passively designed house doesn’t have any heating or cooling mechanical elements; the slab floor collects heat that radiates through the space. Windows are oriented for maximum winter sun, with external eves blocking the heat come summertime.
Note the suspended swing—a favorite feature of the children.
A water-basin skylight illuminates the core of the house—from the roof to the dining area at the heart of the ground-floor living space.
Instead of concrete, the columns at the center of the home were built with local stone for a more tactile feel.

The kitchen/dining area features bespoke American oak joinery, and Juuyo suspension lamps created by Lorenza Bozzoli for Moooi.
The circular wall sconce is a nod to Ahumada’s Mexican heritage. It’s made from a $2 comal—a type of cookware that is traditionally used to prepare tortillas. “We bought four of them, and they turned out amazing using an LED strip and a cake plate," Thomas says.
The geometric shape of the roof was driven by the desire to capture a “perspective view” out into the landscape, through both windows and skylights. “The volumes of the roof extend that view out into the landscape,” says architect Peter Tolkin. “The angle and shape of these various views were all connected, which is how the shape of the roof structure got produced.” As a result, each volume has a unique shape and section.
The dining and living room volume features an eclectic mix of furniture and opens up to an outdoor terrace that encourages engagement with the site and the trees. The circular artwork in this space is by Manny Farber.
An exterior terrace lies just off the main living spaces on the third floor. It can be seen through the window at the stairs.
Natural light cascades over the stairwells to reach the tree growing in the dining room.
Many of the home’s original finishes could not be salvaged, including the walnut plywood in the dining area and kitchen. The siding was replaced with a fresh veneer of the same wood. Recessed baseboards give the kitchen island, topped with a Whitehall Cambria countertop, the appearance that it is levitating. The gilded hanging lamp by Peill & Putlzer was purchased secondhand in France.
The open dining area sits between the living room and the kitchen, and it can be closed off to the entry hallway via a sliding door.
Natural light and materiality were celebrated in the design, from the warm timber surfaces to the pigmented polished plaster walls and micro-cement floors that help reflect light.
DCW Editions' Les Acrobates lights that hang above the dining table contribute to the design's warm, industrial feel.
Yellow Cloud Studio designed the dining table that was built by Stuart Indge Ltd. The midcentury chairs are by Arne Hovmand Olsen, made by Mogens Kold.

The eye-catching capsule window, bisected by a large skylight, was inserted into the original brick wall and replaces a traditional sash window.
A screen made of white oak separates the living room from the dining room and kitchen. The lower level has concrete floors.
The goal for the first floor was to embrace the shade provided by the mature trees, create a rich material moment, and incorporate all of the storage that the family would need.
These wood-wrapped spaces take oriented strand board to new heights.
The warmth of the cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels is contrasted with darker, more stonelike materials throughout—including a polished concrete floor in the dining area and dark stone tiles in the bathrooms.
The dining room features a number of potted plants in a “dry courtyard” that echoes the greenery in the outside living spaces.
The experience of volume is much greater in a small space than in a large one, and that’s what contributes to the house’s feel,” says architect Michael Lumby.
If it’s a minimalist space that you seek, you’re in luck with this 1959 Alexander Construction Company–built home that was designed by William Krisel. This home promises tranquility with crisp, white interiors drenched in sunlight. The backyard offers a multitude of options to keep you and your guests busy: swim in the large pool, converse by the fire pit, or cook up a meal on the gas grill.
The living and dining rooms have custom built-in cabinetry by Alula Woodworks.
The owners did not want window treatments that would obscure the views, so motorized privacy shades and insect screens were installed on the exterior. The polished concrete floor slab helps cool the home in the summer and retain heat in the winter.
An Italian import, the large Bend table seats 10 and melds curved ash legs with a cast aluminum top.
Strategic openings and skylights—such as the one above the dining room table—provide plenty of natural light throughout the day. As a result, artificial lighting is only needed at night.
Pocketed sliding doors connect the breakfast nook to the front yard, which is screened from passersby with olive trees. “Enjoying the early morning light that enters the breakfast nook is a great way to wake up while having a cup of coffee,” says Joseph.
“Public interior and exterior spaces have been arranged to enable free flow from one space to another,” says Joseph. “One can feel the total length and width of the property by standing at the heart of the home, the kitchen island.”
Above the dining room there is an atrium with 28-foot vaulted ceiling and skylights. While the steel “moment frame” structure was initially designed to be entirely framed in wood, the span required a switch to steel, which was left exposed as a design feature to create a “wow” moment upon entry.
The home takes the form of two volumes that slide past each other. The front door leads directly to the center of the home, which connects to the both the entrance courtyard and the rear pool area, dissolving the boundaries between interior and exterior space.
The house is largely furnished with pieces already owned by the couple, including the Eames Wire Chair DKR with Eiffel base used around the dining table. “The furniture all works together to create an eclectic mix,” says designer Jamie Chioco.
A vintage table and chairs ground the dining room, which features art by Chaz Bear (also known as Chazwick Bundick).

Moloney Architects unified the home’s interior and exterior by strategically applying materials. The oak at the interior ceiling continues on the exterior, as does the white brick. The thin profile of the steel around the windows and doors completes the effect.
