Private Residence

Originally built in 1952, the residence beckoned a new 21st century sustainable solution. SAA proposed it's design intent to renovate; a philosophy anchored to the firm's belief of sustainable development. The best portions of the residence and the existing conrete masonry retaining walls would remain.

Existing Black Walnut trees were preserved. Native drought tolerant plants would be augmented. And with new masonry, the ground planes would be redesigned with a new garage, an infinity pool, new decks, flanking retaining walls and a welcoming new exterior entrance stairway.

The design is conceptually influenced by the masonry of Pre-Columbian Architecture where many sites are minimally defined and dictated by the topography and cardinal axes of each location.

In this case, the plateau rigorously sets the absolute floor level and entrance to the residence, the edge of the infinity pool and the top of the masonry walls.

Clean and minimal furniture, and kitchen accessories lace the interior to give it a modern design.
