Unbelievably beautiful mid-century family home in Newport Beach

transitional-home-exterior

This mid-century family home was designed by Brandon Architects in collaboration with Patterson Custom Homes, located in the Port Streets area of Newport Beach, California. This neighborhood is known as a superb family-friendly area for children of all ages. For the homeowners, this was very ideal for a young family with six children, as they purchased the largest property they could find.

This family of eight was limited on their maximum square footage they could build, as per city regulations. To comfortably live in their family home, they realized the best solution would be develop a basement to maximize their site. In all, this home offers 5,200 square feet of living space, with an additional 2,389 feet for the basement level.

Above: The house numbers were sourced from Blair at Signs Plus in Newport Beach. The exterior facade features white clapboard siding, lime-washed brick, all steel doors and windows, wood shingle roofing, and accent metal roofing and gutters.

Above: A three-story cantilevered staircase with no center stringer helps to flood natural light into the basement level. This unique design feature required an intense amount of structural and field engineering. The side stringer was placed into the forms of the basement wall prior to pouring concrete, the enabled the stairs to be integrated into the basement wall itself.

Above: On the first and second levels, brick was installed over the side stringers. This left the steel treads exposed. Each steel tread was wrapped in wood to create a sense of warmth. A glass handrail was installed on the exposed end of the tread, keeping the space as open as possible.

Above: On the second level landing, one can see all the way past the first level to the basement landing. A skylight was adding over the space of the staircase, helping to drench the basement with natural light. Instead of dark and dingy, the basement level is bright and cheerful for this large family.

Above: The family did not wish for this lower-level space to feel like the basement, but rather an additional living area for family and friends to gather. Basements are traditionally dark and dingy areas, so the challenge was to make this space feel like an extension of the first and second levels of this dwelling. In order to achieve this, the project team needed to flood the space with natural light.

Above: At the basement level, expansive pocketing steel doors connects this space to the courtyard, featuring raised decking that matches the pattern of the wood break. To create a seamless connection, the hardwood flooring on the exterior matches that of the interior. When the doors are open, this outdoor entertaining space adds an additional 1,000 square feet!
