House in Southern California
The Ridgewood Residence is designed by Assembledge+ to take the full advantage of the Southern California climate. The luxury and minimalist living space provides a great indoor/outdoor connection with series of areas. One of such areas is a glass-cornered living room which not only gives a possibility to enjoy great views of surroundings but also gives the occupant a feeling of being outside. Another such area is the full-length front porch that is reminiscent of the surrounding neighborhood craftsman homes. The cedar siding, smooth white plaster, and colored MDO panels provide a material palette to complement the refined forms and crisp geometries. One more thing is the full height sliding glass wall at the rear yard allows the house to be completely opened up providing little distinction between indoor and outdoor.
