F-5 Residence-Studio ARD Architects-01-1 Kindesign

F-5 Residence is a beautiful modern vacation retreat designed for a Canadian family by Studio AR+D Architects, located on a valley site in Indian Wells, California. Comprised of 5,300 square feet, this one-story, four-bedroom, four bathroom home with adjacent guesthouse maximizes the site and takes advantage of expansive mountain views. The home offers a continuous connection between the interior and exterior landscape. The material palette is comprised of cast-in place concrete and masonry, corten steel, glass, and Ipe wood siding. Upon entrance into the home, a dramatic mountain view is framed by a wall of floor-to-ceiling glass doors that denotes the end of an open concept living, dining and kitchen area. In the outdoor living spaces, a covered patio encompasses a fire pit and bar, adjacent to a 60-foot sparkling pool. An Ipe deck breaks up the green landscaping, which is covered with drought-tolerant and and native plantings. The palms, cactus, yucca, fruit trees, desert grasses and boulders visually connects to the outdoor living spaces with the 460 square foot guesthouse and outdoor shower.

The interiors of the L-shaped home feel very spacious due to a well organized plan and organic palette. In the kitchen, a neutral travertine wall compliments wells with the light hued sofa and natural walnut dining table and chairs. In the great room is a double-sided fireplace, which is a lounge on the opposite side of the wall. The private spaces are situated down a long corridor just beyond the social spaces, with sliding glass walls that opens onto the swimming pool and outdoor living spaces. The terrazzo-style polished flooring (composed of glass, marble and black river rock encased in cement) helps create a harmonious flow through the home and provides a durable, maintenance-free upkeep.
