Los Angeles-based architectural firm Rios Clementi Hale Studios has designed the Smith-Clementi Residence. Completed in 2012, this 2,200 square foot modern home is positioned in Venice, California, USA.
The property slowly reveals itself along a stroll street in Venice, CA, with the design and style juxtapositions foreshadowed by corresponding fences—a vine-covered traditional wrought-iron fence leads into an raw- wood rustic picket fence. A new huge sliding-glass door opens the reduce level out to the generous plaza formed from linear concrete slabs with grass and pebbles interspersed. No-mow grass surrounds the front elevated entry porch, which starts the constant black concrete-tile flooring that travels from outside by means of the 1st-floor living, dining, and kitchen places, then back outdoors to the al fresco dining platform.
Muted colors on the exterior are derived from the landscape and majestic magnolia tree on the home, while all-natural-wood trim further connects the structure to the landscape. Accessible openings—doors and operable windows—are trimmed in olive paint. The back volume addition encompasses garage and storage with glass-enclosed master suite above. Structural, vertical raw-wood framing is expressively placed about the glass volume. In additional to functionally acting as sunscreens, the beams connote a tree house and correspond to the picket fence in each materiality and attitude. Each front and back parts of the property are distinct on the ground floor—connected by the open-air dining terrace—while the upper- level, cement-board cladded “bridge” connection is far more seamless from the interior, acting as a massive, common space shared by the family. Upstairs, 2 bedrooms and a shared bath for the owners’ 9- and 16-year-old daughters are separated from the master suite by the “bridge”. Central to the bridge is the open household room—a hub of activity combining Television viewing, computer, and various other functions that mirror the family’s lifestyle. The flooring adjustments from wood to cork tiles beyond an olive-colored floor-to-ceiling door that opens to the master suite, which consists of seating area, terrace, bath, and walk-in closets.
