Work experience with Assembledge+

Los Angeles, CA

The Stoneridge Residence is a thoughtful renovation and addition to an existing brick mansion along the Mulholland Drive Scenic Parkway within the Santa Monica Mountains. The design is focused on a juxtaposition of rough hewn, textured materials with clean and smooth materials.

In adding a second floor to the house, the mansion’s brick exterior is contrasted with expansive seamless glass windows. The renovation included construction of a new infinity edge pool, with a gathering area anchored by a dramatic sculptural concrete fountain with an integral fire pit bounded by rustic Cor-Ten steel panels.

The main stair of the house served as a primary exploration of this juxtaposition: full timber oak served as stairs, wrapping around a custom curtain-like wave form that was constructed similar to a surfboard using a resin finish over a foam backing.
