Organic Materials Layered in the Mountains
With a spectacular view of the Santa Monica Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, the Sapire Residence is opened up for a fresh sea breeze and panoramic views. Minimal in form, the layered design flows with an open and relatively informal floorplan to suit the needs of the homeowners.
Use of material is central to the design philosophy. The surrounding landscape is reflected in the home through various types of wood. Industrial board form concrete is utilized throughout which perfectly mimics the pattern and grain of the adjacent wood panels to create a continuous flow. Pebble and stone surfaces further integrate the nearby mountainside.
