alterations were undertaken to open up the rear of the house
to spectacular views by means of decks, large
corner windows and new interior spaces for this 6,000 sq.
ft. sixties style Trousdale Estates residence. Complete interior
renovations included a new main
entry and stair, kitchen, masterbath and reconstruction
of primary public spaces. A second phase of construction added
a new three-car garage, storage and work spaces. The design
was required to provide a balance between large expanses of
glass for the ocean views and unobstructed wall surfaces for
display of the owners collection of contemporary art. Extensive
use of wood and granite provide a warm interior environment
in contrast with the expansive view of the canyon to the exterior.
