Modern Interior Mandeville Canyon Residence by Rockefeller Partners Architects
Designed by Rockefeller Partners Architects, the Mandeville Canyon Residence has modern and extravagant interior design. For the surface materials of the house, Rockefeller Partners worked hand in hand with the interior designer, Alana Homesley. The facade is clad with gray-stained cedar, inspired by the soft gray tones of eucalyptus bark. The material’s color and texture unifies the structure with the surrounding groves of trees. Other defining surface elements are the rich mahogany doors and window frames, and a polished concrete wall that stretches three stories from the basement through the roof. Like the gray cedar, these materials move seamlessly from the exterior to the interior of the house, delineating and integrating indoor and outdoor spaces.
The formal dining room steps down to a sunken living room featuring the great stone hearth while floor-to-ceiling windows provide views of the grounds and periphery eucalyptus groves. Mahogany accordion doors open to a stone patio, again blurring the distinction between indoor/outdoor living, and a formal/informal setting. The master suite’s large walk-in closet with custom Italian cabinetry opens to the master bath’s soft stone tones, which, despite their gentle palette have been very precisely arranged: meticulously placed limestone tiles match perfectly with the lines of the angular bathtub and the contiguous glass. The furniture’s textures and natural tones complement the architectural materials of wood and stone. Having both grown up among artists, the home owners are slowly collecting meaningful pieces of art by close friends and young artists they wish to support.- Photos by Eric Staudenmaier
