Modern Design for the Details - Outdoors
Our modern oasis in the Hollywood Hills epitomizes a design for living indoors, then outdoors, and back again with ease. The outdoor space offers the eye thin wafers of color - “sun beds” in electric green by Paola Lenti. Also flat planes, angles and surfaces of stone that flow to the smooth water of the pool, to the horizon line, and to the over-the-edge view. We would like to share with you those resources and designers that contributed to the project on Hopen Place - starting outdoors.
First, a ceiling high, wall-sized sliding glass door opens up the kitchen to the outdoors dining area. A steel-framed roof protects the exterior dining and seating spaces; its wood ceiling matches the wood floor tones from the interior. In the dining area, a glowing box of light, a Cubrik 100 Suspension lamp, acquired through Santa & Cole, illuminates the Indian Ocean dining table and chairs. This stainless steel and teak table can be extended to accommodate more guests. Meanwhile, dinner can be cooking outdoors on the X Series Island Barbeque by Porsche Design Studio purchased through Barbeques Galore.
And after dinner, no need to hurry indoors. Sit for a while in the low, sleek, deep purple couch that looks out over the pool and city lights below. Adding to the living room feel with-a-twist is a standing lamp from Tango Lighting called "TXL."
