Post & beam living in the canyon with cook’s kitchen among the pines in upper Benedict Canyon. Elevated above the thoroughfare, the design orients to an expansive back patio, making for a modernist tree-house a modest distance from Rodeo Drive. A private elevator links the ground-floor home office with its own bath and the residence one level up. Additional home “studio” basement space on the ground floor adds multiple live-work options, as well as exceptional storage capacity. Richly textured interiors illustrate alternatives to the “white-box” modern concept.
