A Return to the Classics
Set on a lush corner lot near Temescal Canyon, this casually luxurious home features a classic floor plan, including a spacious wrap-around yard.
The former owner, an architecturally-minded celebrity, had reimagined the 2009-built Cape Cod as an eclectic industrial wonderland complete with theatrical lighting in the basement and supergraphic text-art throughout the common areas.
The young family who purchased the Pacific Palisades property enlisted Abramson Architects to help transform their new home into a lighter, more kid-friendly environment that could adapt to their future needs.
A relaxed yet refined style blends an eclectic mix of furnishings and textures. The accents and accessories take their cues from the art curated for each room. The main bathroom expresses a simplified palette that encases the shower/toilet areas in steel and glass.
In the light-filled basement level, a toy storage system made from vintage shipping boxes rolls into place under a set of built-in filing cabinets. Modernizing the roof deck, spa/pool, and outdoor dining area helps the owners take advantage of the moderate year-round climate.
