Crestridge Residence Single Family Home by Colega Architects

Home > Winners > #104548


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Crestridge Residence

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Single Family Home

INSPIRATION:
Making the transition back to sunny California, our design minded clients had visions of keeping doors and windows open year round. Modern, warm and uncluttered was their dream. Without adding a square foot, the existing house was transformed from a 'drive by, don't notice you', tired tract home, into a custom, 'that's a remodel'? modern home that fully encompassed the warmth of family life with the modern aesthetic the couple was looking for.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This project was a full gut remodel. The owners purchased a home that had the square footage and lot size they wanted but lacked the aesthetics, flow and functions they sought. We designed a modern home within the footprint of the existing dated house. Accents such as a louver system for privacy along the front elevation, a vaulted great room with a view in the rear, minimal facade detailing and a warm but clean interior palette brought the old home back to life.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The family wanted to have a guest quarters but still allowed for privacy from their own bedrooms. The solutions was to design two distinct private wings, at opposite ends of the house, to allow for co-family living.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Design Commencement May 2017 - Construction Completion August 2019

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The vertical louver system is detailed in clear grain natural iron wood with black oxide hardware which infills a grey aluminum clad frame. The rear elevation is characterized by the confluence of the vaulted great room volume and the elongated frame, enveloped in warm wood siding on the walls, deck and eave. Contrasting the frame is an inset background of whitewashed wood siding with expansive windows opening to a spectacular view of the L.A. basin.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
This is a 2100 SF house on a 21,000 SF down-sloping lot.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
A significant component to a successful remodel is the documentation and understanding of the existing structure. Efficiency is key when designing a remodel. We challenged ourselves to salvage as much as possible for upfront cost savings (framing and foundation). We took those savings and were able to allocate the funds to enrich aesthetic portions of the project (exterior siding material, high-end appliances, custom cabinetry, etc).

CHALLENGE:
The challenge of the project was to work within the confines of the existing house and create the functional space that the clients were asking for. We were able to reorganize the interior and create a series of spaces that seamlessly connected to each other and to the exterior. We designed with privacy and hierarchy in mind.

NAME:
Colega Architects

PROFILE:
This project was realized for a design minded couple moving from New York back to LA. Making the transition back to sunny California, the couple had visions of keeping doors and windows open year-round. Self-proclaimed foodies, they were looking forward to weekend gatherings and being able to entertain inside and out. They purchased a home that had the square footage and lot size they wanted but lacked the aesthetics, flow and functions they sought. Without adding a square foot, the house was transformed from a generic tract home into a custom, warm and modern home that fully encompasses the family’s way of life.
