Nestled between oak timber, pine, cedar, birch and walnut timber, on a flag lot in Atherton, California, this modern residence provides privateness and an aesthetically pleasing setting for household life. The new household property is protected by 20-foot-tall hedges that provide a personal, enjoyable outside habitat and the potential of drawing sunshine deep inside the house. Known because the ARA Residence, this household Miers Architects as a personal heaven surrounded by refreshing greenery.
Floor-to-ceiling home windows flood the elegant indoors, creating an ever-altering mild dynamic. Spacious and welcoming, the lounge boasts a glass wall hearth and appears outwards to the forest edge past. Architects share some perception into the design of the fashionable Californian household property: “The earliest design technique concerned setting the constructing on an angle, roughly 30 levels, off of the orthogonal grid of the lot, creating diagonal, vanishing vistas from every main area-growing the sense of area surrounding the house. The trapezoid-formed exterior areas have been reworked into landscaped outside rooms for household dwelling, with in depth personal gardens, terraces, and a swimming pool. The home is approached from the west aspect from an extended personal driveway that skirts the sting of the property. A linear entry walkway, coated by a low cantilevered roof overhang, results in the primary entry.” Russell Abraham took the photographs showcasing the house cleverly hidden from neighboring homes.
