laguna residence | pasadena, ca
This comprehensive property makeover embraces the environment of Arroyo watershed and is tactically designed to privilege many of the mature trees which are a major feature of the property. A linear front facade, clad in stained cedar siding and board formed concrete unfold upward to allow clerestory glimpses of the 60 year old live oaks in the rear yard. As one moves through the house the public and private spaces open outward and are connected by an expansive courtyard framed on the exterior side by a linear pool and landscape.
