A California home blends Japanese zen with organic modern details

contemporary-home-exterior

Designed by Brandon Architects this stunning contemporary home located in Dana Point, California blends Japanese details with organic modern materials. The design of this house has multiple layers as it reflects the homeowners’ individual interests as one. Inspiration for this design was drawn from Frank Lloyd Wright and Japanese elements.

The organic modern features begin right at the entry, a courtyard complete with a pond and stepping stones to the oversized pivot front door. This entry leads directly to a wall of windows on the exterior, where the indoor-outdoor experience shines.

What We Love: This striking dwelling takes its cues from both 21st-century modern and Japanese aesthetics. Referencing a wabi-sabi ideal, organic materials were employed to gracefully transform this home into a wonderful living experience. Using a less-is-more approach for the design of this residence, the project team was able to create an inviting sanctuary that will stand the test of time.

The soft furnishings are a continuation of this organic modern style blended with Japanese elements. Inspired by the rammed earth walls’ color palette, earthy tones are predominantly implemented in the finishes and materials. A nod to Japanese heritage is strong in the owner’s retreat, with minimalism, a connection to nature, and even the traditional Japanese soaking tub.

Rammed earth walls from the great room continue through to the exterior, adding another layer of indoor-outdoor connection and organic elements to contrast the metal and glass.
