A residence, in a rural area of Apple Valley CA, was designed by CMA for two physicians to take advantage of a large site with expansive views. The plan organizes the family spaces along a crescent arc, optimizing the unobstructed views to the valley below. The living, dining and family room overlook the pool toward an orchard and then out into the valley. The internal design eliminated internal walls as often as possible, creating a modern open home and maximizing views from space to space through the interior. Where walls are required to define spaces, voids are created to emphasize their permeability.
The interior is designed to support entertaining and family life. Furnishings and finishes were selected and developed to emphasize natural textures and muted colors. The material palette employs warm woods, sculptural concrete tiles, glass mosaics and creamy granites. Casual elegance and stylish living were a goal for this light filled residence.
The team included an executive architect, with a third firm developing the construction documents. CMA’s role included collaboration in the conceptual design and planning, development of the interior planning, finish, furnish selection and collaboration during documentation.
