“I love traveling and recollecting a lot of memories from my journeys,” says Serboli. “I believe that all of this has influenced the design of the apartment.”

“Consciously, I wanted to expose some objects and already knew where to put them before I even had bought the apartment,” he explains. “In an unconscious way, funnily enough, a couple of months after the end of the work, I found a forgotten photo of a trip to Mozambique, of me in a colonial house with small blue round columns, ivory floor and coral-colored doors.”
While Serboli preserved some period elements—namely the bedroom doors and floors—the living room floors could not be fully salvaged, largely due to the removal of several partitions. As such, the new floor is a continuous slab of ivory-colored micro-cement. The cozy living room features a Mags sofa and CAN chair, both by HAY, and a ZigZag stool from Kettal.

After discovering their client's love for the ritual of making campfires, the team behind Scott | Edward Architecture created a double-sided, concrete fireplace, which essentially separates the public and private spaces of the home.
The console is from Room and Board. Kevin designed the metal stair railing to feel good under the hand, and local outlet Mission Iron Works did the fabrication. "First, they waxed the cold rolled steel, and then mixed a few metal patina colors (blue, brown, black) to rub in by hand," the couple say. "It’s a labor-intensive process, but the result gives a finish with subtle variation that changes depending on the light. It would have been easier to paint, but we would never have had the same effect."
They created a striking focal point in the space with custom curtains fabricated from 65 yards of block-printed fabric sourced from India. "Making such a big statement with the curtains was both an aesthetic and practical choice," say the couple. "We spent a week in Jaipur touring textile markets to find the right fabric." The curtains are motor-operated, and a black-out liner ensures good sleep in the bedroom upstairs. An additional sheer liner facilitates daytime light and privacy.
Now, crisp white walls and the refinished concrete floor conjure the loft's urban roots. Sleek black kitchen cabinets sync up nicely with the new metal railing.

In the family room, "short ribbon windows were replaced with a wall of glass" for indoor/outdoor flow.
While the window openings in this cozy corner are the same as before, the architects tweaked the frames. They said: "The layout of the windows was flipped so that the horizontal division was rail height rather than obstructing sightlines when standing."
By removing walls, inserting new windows, and utilizing a lighter color palette, this historic home has been treated to a modern new look.
Living Room and Kitchen
Living Room, Sofa designed by the Architects
The interior stonework echoes the exterior, so that it feels as though the structure has been carved from the hillside.
Retractable walls allow the interior to fluidly merge with its natural surroundings. Per the architects: "While trying to always maintain the relationship between built and wild, the indoors opens completely to allow the breeze and the red sunset light to inundate the space."

Jay points out, “Since the original architecture was about low plains, the challenge becomes about how you can build a second level with a complimentary language, rather than just pancaking similar elements on top of each other.” They tried to weave the new with the old in the new, double-height section.
The wood-and-brick structure, painted white with a cheery orange doors, embodies quintessential Palm Springs architecture with a fresh, contemporary twist.
