Ziering Residence by SPF:architects


SPF:architects designed this stunning private residence located in Pacific Palisades, California, USA, in 2012. Take a look at the complete story after the jump.

From the architects: A curved sweep of living spaces and a projecting wing of bedrooms embrace a panorama of ocean and mountains designed by SPF:architects. The street façade of the Ziering Residence is clad in 1×2 Ipe wood rain screen to offer a quiet, unobtrusive face to the neighborhood with strategic slot windows that give glimpses of what lies beyond. The front door and pivoting wall panels transform this façade when opened, presenting views of the interior, the courtyard and the ocean beyond.


The courtyard side of the house is an exercise in transparency. Sliding glass panels open up the entire house to the outdoors. A deep overhang offers an interstitial covered area for al fresco living. An open floor plan with the living, dining, parlor and kitchen laid out along a curve with the master suite turning the corner creates a sense of intimacy within the relatively generous accommodations.
