Rendition in Green

Canyon Residence
Santa Monica, California

Michael Lehrer of Los Angeles based Lehrer Architects conceived the naturally beautiful Canyon Residence as a timeless and comfortably elegant agrarian villa in a distinctly modern tradition. Important to the clients was access to light, air, and views.

The end result is a veritable 'encyclopedia of the modern villa' that blurs boundaries between indoor and outdoor and demonstrates play between transparencies and solids, de-materialising structural mass through abundant natural light and glass.

Chopin's Nocturne Op. 9 No. 2 provides the finishing touch.
