Each bedroom is designed to feel like a private retreat with a calm, minimalist feel.
In addition to bespoke furniture, key pieces are from Hay.
Leaving behind the Lounge, one re-enters the Living lined with white walls. Beyond the Black Wall is the Dining.
A brick fireplace creates a strong centerpiece for the living space, which is bright an airy thanks to ample natural lighting.
The glass walls of the open-plan living space overlook the atrium and the backyard, bringing in a strong sense of the outdoors.
A deep bench below the windows extends the length of the space, providing additional seating. In addition to large parties, the living room also plays to host music recitals. Acoustic wood ceiling panels enhance the sound quality and provide visual warmth. Built-in benches and steps allow guests to find a comfortable corner.
A Bensen Endless Sectional covered in Kvadrat Raf Simons fabrics sits in the living room.
"We’ve developed a great working relationship where we understand and respect what each brings to a project. Bear understands the architectural intent and interprets it skillfully and successfully. This not only enhances the finished building, it ensures a seamless process along the way," says Bornas.
The stairs lead up to a home office that can be closed off with bespoke folding doors to become an extra bedroom for guests.
"Given we had a free-flowing, open-plan approach for this house, we wanted the furniture to reflect that also, with largely selected furnishings that were lightweight," say the architects, noting that many pieces have splayed legs.
This reading nook offers a calm environment to rest and relax.
The Garden Den enjoys direct access to the backyard and is envisioned as the more casual counterpart to the main living room.
Living Room
A peek at the nook in the living room.
The bright and airy interiors are a mix of lightly colored oak floors juxtaposed again dark fixtures and exposed steel beams.
North-facing skylights were cut out from the roof to brighten the interiors and establish a visual connection to the bushy site.
Key pieces of joinery were used to visually distinguish the thresholds defining the foyer, living and dining areas, kitchen, butler’s pantry, and study.
Approaching the remodel with a less-is-more philosophy, Downie North did minimal alterations to make the building's existing 6,782-square-feet footprint more efficient and intuitive.
Floor-to-ceiling glass was custom-produced by Fleetwood to allow for various vistas throughout the home—capturing the hills, wildlife, and valley views.
Corrugated steel ceilings are left exposed—a reminder that this is, after all, a container converted into a home. Spray foam insulation keeps the space from experiencing extreme temperature shifts.

The kitchen and living area are connected to a small sun-drenched balcony.
In the living area, six large windows on the west-facing wall look out toward the streets of SoHo.
The large pendant lamp was designed by Arik Levy for Vibia, and the TamTam floor lamp was designed by Fabien Dumas for Marset.
The living room features two sofas by Patricia Urquiola designed for Kettal and a Polder sofa by Hella Jongerius for Vitra. The Slow Chairs were designed by the Bouroullec brothers for Vitra.
We also wanted to marry the painterly piece of art behind the sectional with some new elements, so we chose accessories that would mimic the patterns and shapes in the composition. Various textures were utilized to add some organic, natural arrangements to the living space and make it feel more relaxed.
Our interior designer wanted to enhance the existing furniture and overall sophisticated aesthetic. To fuse the old elements with the new, we sourced pillows in vibrant colors pulled from the client’s daring, non-representational art. This also gave the space an element of approachable luxury, as opposed to the bare, formal look that it initially conveyed.
The sofa had to be large and deep enough that the couple and their dog could lay back, watch TV and enjoy the space. So, we had a sectional custom made and upholstered in a heavy duty Kravet fabric.
Wraparound windows and sliding glass doors lead to the mahogany deck, giving the home a strong sense of indoor/outdoor living.
The opening to the dining area has been increased, and the square footage added to the original footprint has allowed for a grand staircase that now connects the lower level.
Silver opened up and vaulted the ceiling, which instantly created a bright and airy, modern interior. He also centered the picture window and added sliding doors that lead out to two separate outside patios.
The vaulted ceiling adds an expansive airy feel that the original home lacked. Now, the wall of windows perfectly frames the gorgeous overlook.
This area now makes a beautiful spot to curl up and read a book.
 The firm's mandate was to create architecture that worked, yet "disappeared."
One of the architects' main focuses during the remodel was opening up the interior space.
Dining & Living
The second-floor vacation suite has a convertible Softline sofa and cardboard stools from Stange Design. The storage unit is clad in black MDF.
The Kelleys furnished the cottage with help from Suzanne’s daughter Betsy Burbank of Betsy Burbank Interiors. Classic modernist icons, such as a Saarinen Womb chair for Knoll, a Herman Miller Eames lounge chair, and an Eileen Grey E1027 side table look at home alongside present-day pieces such as an Encore sofa (which handily folds down into a sleeping surface) from Room & Board and a Doka rug designed and produced by Stephanie Odegard. The Wohlert pendant lights from Louis Poulsen were designed by Vilhelm Wohlert in 1959, but grouped as such, they appear distinctly contemporary.
The designers explain, “These steel windows played an integral part in making the interior feel larger and more open by blurring the boundaries between the interior and exterior.” A grey Halcyon Lake area rug, an oak chair from MAP, and Hans Wenger Wishbone chairs make for a simple, neutral palette. The painting over the fireplace is by Kate Hendry.
In the living area, Mori pendants by Rich Brilliant Willing hang above an Erased Heritage rug by Jan Kath.

Designers Sara and Rich Combs of The Joshua Tree House brought The Assembly to life with a soothing neutral color scheme and quirky vintage furnishings and decor.
The Kind of Blue 1959 Airstream features a completely renovated interior with crisp white walls, custom cabinetry, and hardwood floors.
The staircase is constructed of laminated 3/4" plywood sheets, and all of the components are interlocking using mortise and tenon joints instead of fasteners.
The stylish staircase provides a strong focus for the open-plan interior, and was constructed out of fir plywood by Duerksen himself.
Designer Melanie Coddington of Coddington Design tranformed the family room into her "Unapologetically Pink Rosé Lounge." Inspired by edginess and fueled by French rosé wine, the lounge is modern, opulent, and without a doubt, unapologetically pink. The lounge revolves around a geometric marble and walnut cocktail table with brass inlaid rings to mimic wine stains. Nearby sits a midcentury-style gondola sofa with custom fabric and a classic American 1950s swivel chair.
The sitting room is an updated homage to the past that references the home’s history while keeping a distinctly contemporary vibe. "However, she did want to make one room that felt old," explains Yun.
Thanks to the glass perforations connecting the first two levels of the home, the structure no longer suffers from a dark, gloomy interior. The team also incorporated a handmade steel staircase to link the ground floor to the basement.
“With a single contribution of natural light -- the windowed facade facing street -- the apartment is designed to be 'turned' towards this light, with its glass rooms. Elements holding the old garage function were kept as witnesses and graphic structures of the apartment,” says Pelcé.
To one side of the entrance door is a large, light blue, chaise lounge-style sofa bed.
A sectional designed by the residents joins a coffee table that Trey devised out of marble left over from a bathroom floor. The teak lounge chair by S.A. Andersen & Erik Andersen and Palle Pedersen for Horsnaes Møbler and the Jens Risom side table are both vintage. The painting is by Wesley Kimler.
The first floor contains another bedroom and full bath in addition to the modern living room, kitchen, dining room and bar.
