New single family residence with detached guest house and pool / Los Angeles (2016)
The McLaughlin Residence was the first new construction in the several decades in its neighborhood, presenting a design challenge in introducing a contemporary home within an older context of one-story homes. The wider than standard lot, offered the opportunity to create an L-shaped layout, with a reduced mass facing the front, and a very generous outdoor space. A guest house was also introduced, to offer live-work flexibility to the owners. The high ceiling interiors were oriented to receive ample exposures to the outdoors, reinforcing the sense of openness and lightness.
