A spectacularly situated San Francisco Tudor provided DTLA an opportunity to create unique outdoor moments throughout the property. Inspired by the site, the landscape design was oriented to the breathtaking views of the city and the Bay, while more secluded areas were designed to open into their own distinct garden room. Off the main wing, a terrace accommodating a dining area for twelve is outfitted with an outdoor kitchen and pizza oven, while on a quieter corner of the estate, Japanese maples shade a sculpture garden and fountain. On a lower terrace, informal dining takes place beside the lap pool and fireplace.
An architect by trade and historian by passion, the homeowners worked closely with the design team to incorporate period-appropriate elements into their personal vision. The DTLA team paid attention to smallest detail, bringing in local artisans to create a distinctive look for the metalwork throughout the estate, and quarried Montana bluestone was brought in to complete the design.
