Ben Lomond House
This investment property was dank and divided, hidden from its potential. Lehrer Architects LA’s design revealed stunning views from all the way to the back of the property; a patio for relaxing and hosting; a new processional connection to the home’s pool; and the work broke down barriers to the home’s spaciousness.
Now the house is fronted by an exuberant, sculptural fence that engages the sidewalk and let’s light bounce inward. The next step in the design process was unifying the living room by knocking down walls that were not load-bearing. The new lateral spaciousness complemented views overlooking all of Los Angeles from palm-tree eye level. The next step was to open up this interior space outward, through wall to wall glass doors and a luxurious kitchen with a bar/counter that spills seamlessly from inside cooking zone to outside serving zone, entering the patio area. This focal point allows access to four special sites on the property – one, to the garage, which, with the help of a 10’ glass sliding wall, has been converted to a potential office; two, to the pool, three, to the lush entrance, and four, to the outdoor room of Los Angeles.
