Complementing the nature, the San Lorenzo Residence adds a touch of value to the surrounding landscapes, with out “stealing” their glory. Best for a family members that seeks an airy way of life and overall, peacefulness, the residence located in Los Angeles, USA, nearby a golf course, responds to the needs of the clientele: it is spacious and it promotes the concept of open (and transparent) living space.
Designed and created by Mike Jacobs Architecture, the residence is an uncluttered house atmosphere, with a spectacular interior private garden. “The big open living space is central to the organization and efficiency of the house the space of exchange. Pocket sliding doors open the south wall to the garden and north facing windows unfold to view the fairways produce direct connections to the exterior. These large openings passively cool the house and draw fresh air deep into the residual spaces to naturally ventilate the house.” The house is perceived as the intersection of two L-shaped blocks uniting: one accommodates the social living space with the living room and the lounge location, that can be used for diverse outside activities and the other 1, wrapped in cedar and stucco, the bedrooms.
