Located along the scenic Mulholland Drive in the hills of Bel Air, the Stoneridge Residence is a 11,781 square-feet renovation of an estate home.
Sitting on a uniquely perched site overlooking the San Fernando Valley, the renovation reconnects the residence with its site through large restructured openings and a comprehensive landscaping effort. Along with its expansive lawn and native vegetation, the back yard focal piece is an Olympic-sized infinity-edge pool and Barragan inspired water feature.
A second-floor addition,looking out on to the back yard and San Fernando Valley,unifies the building made of a large mass of brick-faced forms. One was the design goals was to retain and celebrate the original exterior and compliment it with large expanses of glass and dark steel support elements.
The interior spaces are affiliated by a focus on elemental wood and stone materials. The ground floor includes a large working kitchen, a family room, and appointed home theater. A a custom designed rough-sawn lumber staircase with a rippling and custom-molded wall that gives the illusion of a fabric curtain blowing in the wind leads to the upper floor reserved for guest bedrooms and an open-flowing 2100-square-feet master bedroom suite.
