Waterfall Residence

Packed with off-grid tech, the three-bedroom, three-bath Waterfall Residence soaks up stunning views of Carmel Valley. Andrew Goodwin Designs collaborated with the homeowners who are seasoned industrial designers on the final structure. To avoid disturbing the dozens of old-growth oak trees, and to mitigate the site’s elevation change of 75-plus feet, the architects opted to lift the 2,330-square-foot, home into the tree canopy, ensuring spectacular views that overlook the valley in three directions-west, south and east.

Built with the factory-fabricated Blue Sky Building System (BSBS), the home’s steel-framed floor, roof, and structural posts were rapidly bolted together on-site in less than two weeks. All-Weather dual-glazed sliding doors and windows frame views of the landscape and flood the interior with natural light.

"This home is a culmination of design efforts—by them and us—to achieve a space where they can celebrate contemporary design," says Goodwin. The Waterfall Residence is named after the home’s rear wall, which is angled to funnel rainwater runoff from the roof into two 2,000-gallon storage tanks under the home.

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.
