With a property that sits atop the lively and bustling city of Los Angeles, the homeowner jokingly asked for “the largest TV in the world” as his primary wish; in contrast to homes that have large, wall-sized TVs in every room, he wanted an entire side of the home opened up to reveal the majesty of the outside world.  The empty-nesters were ready for a downsized home that defined the more mature pace of their current lifestyle.  No longer in need of massive spaces and countless rooms, the couple bought a classic and relatively small ranch-style house with a glamorous view of Santa Monica Bay.  
The existing structure was stripped down to the studs so it could be rebuilt with crisp lines and modern figurations.  The entire home is oriented towards and opens up to the view of the Bay; a true indoor/outdoor living experience.  Even intimate spaces, such as the master shower, are invited to enjoy the view with an extra-large window that overlooks the patio.  An open and fluid layout makes the smaller space feel more voluminous and caters to harmonious transitions, finished with minimal and cool-toned neutrals.  In addition to the master and guest bedroom suite, living room, kitchen, and dining area, a home office for two is situated at the entrance.  
On the patio, an infinity pool is accompanied by a comfortable outdoor bed overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  Built-in fireplaces and ceiling heaters are strategically placed around the outdoor living room, offering the ideal setting to enjoy the Southern California weather year-round.  Bright yellow accents provide a welcome punch of color to the monochromatic color scheme.  Exterior materials were selected in response to the desire for a low maintenance home; Trespa, Swiss Pearl, and metal siding wrap the facade and created a refined, simple, modern look.
