Los Angeles is renowned for its chic modern buildings and homes that are an example of what contemporary design wrapped in luxury should ideally look like. Here is another stunning home located on a gorgeous hilly setting of LA that seems to crisply amalgamate modern minimalistic trends with a love for nature to create a chic and ergonomic home that is dazzling both in terms of sleek form and ergonomic function. Designed by Aleks Istanbullu Architects the house embraces the vivid shades of nature on the outside with stripes of varying shades of green that ensure it blends in with the surrounding green.
Striking features like the wooden walls in the kitchen or the relaxing area and the wooden ceiling on the outside certainly kick it up a notch but it’s the warm atmosphere of the living room and all other spaces that gets to me for the Caruth Boulevard Residence.
