Clean lines and subtle curves in the hills of Beverly
Designing in nature is a joy and a challenge, one Jason Bolden (right) and Adair Curtis, of Los Angeles–based multidisciplinary JSN Studio, approach with relish. “When looking at the plans for this project, we immediately began drawing comparisons to Philip Johnson’s Glass House,” says Curtis, referring to this Beverly Hills home by Woods + Dangaran architects, which consists of a series of glass pavilions set high on a hill. “Informed by the minimal structure, proportions, reflections of the glass and beautiful materials, we set out to design interiors that were at once calming and timeless themselves.” The duo chose neutral furnishings with strong silhouettes that would not get lost against the backdrop of the prairie outside, all of them custom crafted for the project. Overhead, and reflected on the lap pool surface, are a pair of Arrow chandeliers from Apparatus in aged and blackened brass. The result: a house as enticing as its surroundings.
“We approach each project with a fresh set of eyes and heavily weigh how our clients plan to use a given space. They want to see themselves reflected in their home but also want to be inspired by their surroundings.”
