About Magnolia Residence

Screened Outdoor Court and Entertaining Deck

Two volumes of board-formed concrete shield an elegant outdoor court from prying neighbors’ eyes. Nestled between the main house and a rooftop garden, a wooden deck unfurls, offering a charming area for social gatherings.

Harmonious Integration of Indoor and Outdoor Spaces

Enormous hardwood-framed glass doors open generously onto the court, artistically blurring the lines between the interior and exterior realms. The harmony between the indoors and outdoors enhances the home’s aesthetic appeal and adds a unique charm to its overall design.

Floating Residential Volume and Office Space

Seeming to float above the glass-clad main floor, a volume cloaked in dark, vertically aligned siding envelops the bedrooms and a dedicated home office. This unique architectural feature combines privacy and style, delivering an unmatched residential experience.

Subdued Palette Infuses Warmth and Craftsmanship

This home employs a purposefully subdued palette comprising concrete, dark siding, and hardwood. The carefully chosen materials infuse warmth into the structure, resulting in an artful blend of craft and modern simplicity that is both inviting and captivating.
