This home located on Tanager is the third project McClean Design have completed on the exclusive West Hollywood street. The cul-de-sac location offers stunning views and is highly coveted. The project is situated on a corner lot which provided an opportunity to separate pedestrian and vehicular entry. The main objectives were to accommodate a large program and maximize the available views of the city below.
The design team achieved this by utilizing a single story over basement layout. The basement design aimed to maximize light and create appealing spaces. The solution was a linear light well separating the street from the main house. From the street, only the entry gate is visible between two large stone walls.
Upon entering, the glass living space with a spectacular view is revealed, accessed via a bridge over the light well and water feature. The bridge serves to slow participants down and create a feeling of separation from the street. The light well opens to an entertainment space and an office area, and light is reflected by a white marble waterfall. The water feature fills the light well, except for a floating platform ideal for reading or admiring the living green walls at either end. The basement is further enhanced by a skylit stairwell and bedrooms that daylight to the view beyond.
The interiors were co-designed with Minotti and feature a deep, rich color palette, creating a series of inviting spaces.
