Living in a unique location is possible thanks to architectural firm Walker Workshop. In Los Angeles, California, you will find a rustic family home in a canyon. The area is heavily forested and lushly covered with oak and sycamore trees. Ideal for families who like tranquillity.
The house has only one floor and consists of a garage and four bedrooms, of which the master bedroom has a floating ceiling overlooking the trees. The living room and the kitchen are connected by four glass walls. This allows nature and light to be drawn into the middle of the house at any time of day. The northern wall contains a small fireplace surrounded by a terrarium-like garden filled with succulents.
The kitchen is like a cathedral with its ceiling of over two metres.
The kitchen is located on the southern side and overlooks some tea trees. The kitchen is also called the cathedral of the house because it has a high ceiling of over two metres. For the interior, the architectural firm opted for simplicity: simple cupboards and a light-coloured marble worktop. The materials in the rest of the house maintain this simplicity. To some extent, the combination of simple stucco and planted areas is an interpretation of the classic hacienda style that was dominant in this region a century ago. Lastly, a walled courtyard has been created for a private play area. Walker Workshop has certainly taken the whole family into account. We, at least, would have loved to play in such an environment during our childhood!
