Nestled on one acre in prestigious Hope Ranch, this intriguing concrete contemporary was designed by Cearnal Andrulaitis LLP Architects. The owner placed a request to construct a home capable of housing his large collection of motorcycles, thus, the team of architects had to provide a remarkable solution in order to simultaneously adhere to Hope Ranch’s FAR restrictions. Here is what Cearnal Andrulaitis LLP had to say regarding this unique project.
To fit within the Hope Ranch architectural guidelines and to reflect the spirit of early Hope Ranch homes, we incorporated traditional hip roof forms with generous wood eaves graciously and comfortably settle onto the exposed concrete, creating surprising warmth. A one story outdoor living room softens the two story massing from Las Palmas. The pool is uniquely situated in the front yard, ensconced by this outdoor room and elegant concrete walls, one hiding a secret pool slide. Tropical landscape elements are used sparingly, surrounded by mature Eucalyptus, a large cluster of historic pines, and the Canary Island palms lining Las Palmas. It is a dramatic home that settles remarkable into its surroundings.
