The Revello Residence located in Los Angeles, California was designed by the practice of Shubin and Donaldson Architects on a site with sharp wedges that imposed a vertical layout since there wasn’t enough land to work with efficiently, so the project could be seen as one of restrictive plot design.
The residence spreads over three floors with an open view toward the coast and an oceanfront location that makes enhances the beauty of the overall project. The ground level is where the living areas, kitchen and shared spaces are placed to permit an opening to the terrace on the edge of the hill.
There is a patio and yard with landscaping elements to make the entire residence seem larger than the constructed space is. The interior has an open floor plan to integrate the view of the ocean into the design and thus clean tones were used with wood and stone accents to bring more diversity to the white walls and ceiling.
