Because much of the building’s original, historically significant interior features no longer existed, Chan + Eayrs were free to reinvent the space, adding their own twist to the Huguenot building’s vernacular vocabulary.
The dining room and open kitchen
Living Room
The kitchen and living area are connected to a small sun-drenched balcony.
A pink, sculptural staircase appears to float in the middle of the common area, demarcating the boundary between the living and dining areas, and connecting the two levels.
In the main living space, brightly colored furnishings—including an iconic womb chair and a sofa from Ligne Roset—create a playful interior space for lounging. A laminated glass floor allows light to pass further between the various levels.
The large pendant lamp was designed by Arik Levy for Vibia, and the TamTam floor lamp was designed by Fabien Dumas for Marset.
The interiors are a mix of vibrant wallpapers that create murals to provide color and design, geometrically patterned Mexican tiles and designer furniture.
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.
“We designed a column-free interior space for the entire upper floor, indoor and outdoors, to connect the spaces. This structural approach, which includes outdoor space in the span of a roof system, is unusual. The seven sliding glazed panels at the rear and corner of the house allow it to open up onto large exterior spaces,” says McLeod.
Wraparound windows and sliding glass doors lead to the mahogany deck, giving the home a strong sense of indoor/outdoor living.
Oak floors, neutral furnishings, and an area rug by Han Feng for Tai Ping warm the office, as does the view of surrounding treetops. “You really feel as if you’re in the canopy,” says architect Takashi Yanai. A vintage Louis Vuitton trunk serves as a coffee table.
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.
White shelving blends in seamlessly with the crisp, white walls.
The home's original structure can be viewed through the glass panels of the new unit.
Here is a peek at the living room looking toward the entry.
The vaulted ceiling adds an expansive airy feel that the original home lacked. Now, the wall of windows perfectly frames the gorgeous overlook.
A Danish sofa, designer unknown, is set against an accent wall painted in Stone Blue by Farrow & Ball. As the local dealer for Anastassiades, the Apartment contains various pieces of his work, including the Mobile Chandelier 5 (2011), the Ball vase in cast brass (2006), and the wall-mounted Beauty Mirror (2010). The vintage Boucherouite rug is from Morocco. Photos courtesy the Apartment.
This lower volume features a series of light-filled patios. It also houses the main living areas, which are located under a wooden pavilion.
Saunders custom-designed the bookshelf in the living lounge, which have shelves that get shorter as they rises up the wall to match the windows.
This structure encloses the interior wall at an axis of 45 degrees on the plane.
A vintage 1950s credenza discovered in Paris supports three works by Aumas and two Sol LeWitt–inspired cubes used in one of his window displays. The daybed is an eBay purchase reupholstered in fabric from Kvadrat and the dark paint is from Dulux Valentine. Aumas found the photographer’s lamp at a Brussels flea market.
The living room has a close-up street view and abundant natural light. The sofa is Mags from Hay Studio, the table is an old Fritz Hansen base with a new top, and the Arne Jacobsen chair is also a refurbished vintage piece.
Bornstein’s living room features an intriguing collection of furniture. The sofa is made by Swedish manufacturer Ire. The 1970s wood burner was a secondhand store find, and the wood table, by Bruno Mattson, was found in a bin at a recycling station. He inherited the lounge chair from his parents.
The interiors frame selective views of the existing rock walls, and contrast them with light finishes of white walls and wood furniture and shelving.
In the living area, Mori pendants by Rich Brilliant Willing hang above an Erased Heritage rug by Jan Kath.
The living spaces of house, built in 1972 or 1973, were originally divided into three—a kitchen, living and dining area, and an atrium (previous owners had covered the atrium with a roof). "The new owners wanted the interior space to flow as one, so we removed the glass doors and solid walls separating the enclosed atrium from the kitchen and living room," principal John Klopf says. "Some structural posts needed to remain to hold up the roof, but overall the space was opened up almost completely. The floor was leveled, and the plan freed up." The rainbow print is a 1960s Herman Miller trade poster, and the Vitamin Water print by a New York artist. A Sapien book tower from Design Within Reach sits next to the TV. The sofa is IKEA.

Silvia just recently discovered a midcentury Scandinavian lounge chair at a vintage London market. It’s supported with elm wood and has been newly upholstered in 100-percent Wool Camira fabric. It sits next to an Ikea TV stand and a set of three photographs that Silvia and her boyfriend made themselves. Representing three places they love—Barcelona, London, and Ireland—they printed photographs they took onto metal.

The lobby, anchored by a pair of green velvet sofas and a fireplace, combines a lounge area and general store with beverages and snacks; games to play by the pool, in the room, or on the road; and a curated selection of retail goods.
A small side window in the living room that was previously boarded up is now re-opened above the dotted bespoke radiator cover.
Perhaps the family’s biggest priority was their connection to the outdoors. The north-facing facade is almost entirely made up of operable windows with screens for ventilation and—a favorite of Jeff, the family father—listening to the lullabye of cicadas and spring peeper frogs during the summer.

The joint living and dining area features a Wishbone chairs by Hans Wegner for Carl Hansen & Son, a Groundpiece sofa from Flexform, David Weeks' Tripod No. 303 floor lamp, and PP Møbler's Circle Chair and Fruit Table. The latter two are also by Hans Wegner.
