Culver City Contemporary

This 3,200 square foot Culver City Contemporary home features 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. The residential design exemplifies sophisticated contemporary architecture in its simple expression of form, efficient use of space, and elegant interior. Vital to the design of the residence, its exterior respects and takes advantage of both the neighborhood itself and the home’s position within the neighborhood – a corner lot.

Andmore Partner’s design breaks down this residence into to human scale through the use of texture and minimal color palette. The white stucco form is accentuated with two juxtaposing black masses. The two extruded mass visually connects both street fronting facade, and two levels of the house, drawing the eye from one black mass to another, forming mental imagery of an interlocked massing. The exterior’s mid height site wall and low level landscaping creates an openness while maintaining privacy and intimacy in this friendly pedestrian oriented neighborhood.

Layered landscaping is employed in lieu of the traditional manicured lawn, creating an inviting entryway into the residence. A mid-height concrete wall cascades down to Corten steel planter boxes, hosting a variety of low water consumption plants. Behind the board-formed concrete wall peeks taller trees and bushes forming layers upon layers soft and hardscape with varying colors and textures. The landscape keeps the mild color palette and still addresses both climate and budget concerns.

Every room in this residence has All Weather windows on two different sides for natural ventilation. Each All Weather window or door is designed to reflect the layout and function of each room as well as nourish the relationship with its surrounding. Large All Weather picture windows offer famed vistas of the neighborhood and beyond while also providing the exterior an elegant appearance. The All Weather Series 7000 swing door in combination with Series 5000 fixed and casement windows open to the second floor balcony, allowing natural light into the master bedroom.

The interior of this contemporary residence is simple but warm, using a combination of wood, marble, quartz, and steel. The calm, natural color palette creates a harmonious backdrop and re-imagines a living space by replacing a separated designated living area with one unified entity. The living, kitchen, and dining rooms connect as one continuous space with All Weather Series 9100 bifold doors integrating with the backyard to maximize the living area. The open stair acts as a medium to expand the first-floor living area onto the second floor. Indirect southern light illuminates the space to keep it open and warm, without being blindingly bright or too hot – perfect for the southern California climate.

Hacienda Granada

Featured in Dwell, Hacienda Granada is an eclectic modern residence designed by Working Holiday Studio that subtly combines the Spanish influences of a Mexican hacienda with Scandinavian minimalism and features All Weather Architectual Aluminun custom windows and doors.

Carlos Nuade and Whitney Brown run Working Holiday, a multi disciplinary creative studio based in Los Angeles that boasts a portfolio of several renovation projects across Southern California.

Originally built in 1962, the 2,762-square-foot residence with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths was not the couple’s dream home but they saw potential in its vaulted ceilings, ample-sized kitchen, backyard pool and large garage and more importantly, they found a space where they could infuse with their own personal history and distinct taste. "Our style is very modern and minimalist," Carlos explains. "But we still wanted to include some of the warmth, accents, and tones from traditional Spanish architecture."

Carlos and Whitney chose All Weather Series 5000 casement and fixed windows with SDL's to infuse the home with the Hacienda vibe. They replaced the existing patio entry door with expansive Series 8100 Multi Slide Doors that connect to the living and dining room. The couple opened up the kitchen by adding an All Weather Series 7000 French Doors and repositioned the island so you can see into the house when they are cooking. They also reshaped most of the interior doorways, creating arches to enhance the Spanish-Mexican vibe.

All Weather was honored to be selected for Hacienda Granada because Carlos and Whitney treat their projects like showrooms and they only bring on brands they like and curate the space accordingly.
