The Keeshen Residence: Amazing Design For Indoor/Outdoor Living ⇒ Created by DEX Studio, what was originally supposed to be a discreet single story residence turned into a two-story home when the studio decided to add a second floor to the original. This change of plans made way for incredible views that span all the way to the Hollywood Sign, a huge bonus in Los Angeles real estate.
The Keeshen Residence was designed to offer the best of Southern California indoor/outdoor living while boasting views of Los Angeles’ most iconic landmark. The contemporary design shows the use of lots of warm woods, spotted under the exterior roof overhangs which feature redwood cladding running opposing ways on each floor.
The extended roof lines offer protection from the sun while adding appeal to the home. A part of the lower overhang is cut out, allowing the tree below to grow up through the hole without any disruption. This goes along the indoor/outdoor living philosophy, showing the importance of nature.
The front entryway has an expanded porch where the owners can sit outside and enjoy the weather. It is equipped with a barbecue and exquisite contemporary furniture that is very inviting to outdoor relaxation.
The backyard is equally as inviting, with space to relax and a swimming to enjoy. A vertical succulent wall was built into the redwood fence that doubles as a piece of art.
Large sliding glass doors open up to connect the interior to the outdoors, extending the square footage and giving the illusion of a much bigger space. The same wood treatment continues inside, giving the space a cosy feel.
