HOUSES WE LOVE : DWELL HOME TOURS LOS ANGELES
DWELL HOME TOURS LA
Collaboration: In case you've been avoiding social media, we've rounded up some of the top homes presented at last week's LA Design Event, "Dwell on Design". We met Jonathan Adler, Drove the ultra-luxury hybrid " KARMA" car, we were inspired by industrial designer, and thought leader Karim Raschid, and were entertained by Dwell with a special VIP dinner with LA's architects and designers at the sensational Barrington Residence, in Brentwood, CA. a 2017 Home Tour inductee.
The Dwell Home Tours is always a wonderful opportunity to see in person the many new architectural delights and an opportunity to tour million dollar properties in Brentwood, Belair, and Hollywood Hills above the city with amazing views.

image via DEZEEN This amazing home, "The Barrington Residence", was part of the Dwell 2017 Home Tour, and what an architectural gem. Located in the affluent neighborhood of Brentwood, and on a beautiful property with views of the canyon, evening sunsets and the Getty Museum, this home blends into the hillside in a beautiful response to the land.

This is intelligent architecture embodies responsible building principles on this sloped property in the canyon area. It is unfortunate to see the beautiful hillside that draws residents to this area, destroyed by many builders and architects using massive concrete footings and bearing walls embedded along the canyon walls to support the weight of poorly designed McMansions.
These often appear like scares on the sides of the hills. The Barrington Residence was instead, built-in relationship with the land, creating not only luxury living but a variety of vistas and views from each room through the integration with the sloped site.

This home also showcases the LA style of Al Fresco, with blurred lines between the inside and the outside. For more image of the fabulous home and more views on indoor and outdoor living visit Dezeen, for the full feature on Rosen Architects' portfolio for more images on this and other projects.

Million Dollar Real Estate

Sailing the high hills above the city lights, design inspiration abounds at Marchetta Residence. This Home Tour was a wonderful opportunity to see this luxury estate, designed by Cha:Col Studios and located in the hills above Los Angeles with wonderful vista views of the city valley.

Fellow Blog tour attendee, Elle H Millard was inspired!
An open modern kitchen with shelving!
More blurred lines on an indoor-outdoor transition between being inside and outside. Consumers want to be able to combine their outdoor space with the indoor floor plan.
Succulents are the new vegetation. It dominated our Instagram feeds. Full of color and drought tolerant, the is the plant for southern desserts like LA with limited water supply.
Wonderland Home: Architect: Assembledge Baldwin Hills, CA.
Blurring the lines and living outdoors and in. Collapsable windows were seen at every residence, allowing a home to enlarge by opening up to the backyard and pool area.
Open windows and light wells create delightful Entry and Open Kitchen area.
Indoor / outdoor relationship with expansive windows among the treetops. This was a favorite bathroom for most of us!

"Cold and stark aren’t the only misconceptions about modern design. People often confuse contemporary with modernism,” Bryan says. “Contemporary means ‘of the times,’ and modernism is timeless. There’s a big difference.”
