Ridge House 是位于加利福尼亚州洛杉矶的一座极简主义住宅，由 After Co.After Co.进行的这次全面翻修包括对平面图进行深思熟虑的重新设计，以营造开放、相互连接的空间。设计的主要目的是利用自然光，通过精心布置的窗户实现这一目标，这些窗户可以提供广阔的视野，包括格里菲斯天文台的景色。Ridge House 所选用的材料色调以其自然、手工制作的品质而著称，旨在捕捉加州细微的光线。定制家具和嵌入式家具是整个住宅的标志性元素。值得一提的是池畔小屋，实木装饰框架增强了橱柜的耐用性和视觉吸引力。
Ridge House is a minimalist home located in Los Angeles, California, designed by After Co. This comprehensive overhaul, conducted by After Co., involved a thoughtful redesign of the floor plan to foster open, interconnected spaces. The main aim was to harness natural light, achieving this through strategically placed windows offering expansive views, including sights of the Griffith Observatory. The material palette chosen for the Ridge House is remarkable for its natural, handcrafted quality, aimed at capturing the nuanced California light. This approach is evident throughout the home, with custom furniture and built-ins being a signature element. Noteworthy is the poolhouse, where solid wood trim frames enhance the durability and visual appeal of cabinetry.
在主浴室等空间，设计包括胡桃木控制台和用 Arabescato 大理石定制的底座水槽等独特的作品，这些都是 After Co.里奇住宅中一个引人注目的改造是厨房的翻新。新的布局将原来的厨房和早餐室合并在一起，形成了一个开放式的餐厅厨房。这个空间的特点是加高了天花板，通过天窗和窗户引入了大量自然光，以及带有大理石细节的定制橱柜。设计还融入了定制元素，如白橡木长凳和水泥瓷砖背景墙，并辅以 Allied Maker 的照明灯具。材料的选择，包括 Fireclay、Zelige、Cle Tile、Ann Sacks 和 Eco Outdoor 的瓷砖，进一步彰显了项目对质量和风格的承诺。
In spaces like the primary bathroom, the design includes unique pieces like a walnut console and custom-fabricated pedestal sinks made from Arabescato marble—prototypes for After Co.’s future product line. A striking transformation within the Ridge House is the kitchen renovation. Merging a former kitchen and breakfast room, the new layout features an open, eat-in kitchen. This space is characterized by heightened ceilings, an influx of natural light through skylights and windows, and custom cabinetry with marble details. The design also incorporates bespoke elements like a white oak bench and cement tile backsplashes, complemented by lighting fixtures from Allied Maker. The choice of materials, including tiles from Fireclay, Zelige, Cle Tile, Ann Sacks, and Eco Outdoor, further underscores the project’s commitment to quality and style.
“Flex “是大流行期间设计的一个独立单元，是该物业的一个创新性补充。它面积不大，但功能多样，可用作单间公寓、池畔餐厅和工作空间。其紧凑的设计最大限度地利用了室内空间，垂直延伸至裸露的结构，水平延伸至室外露台，营造出一种开放感。阿索比是一个专为幼儿设计的互动空间，这也是这对夫妻在翻新工程中的一个引人入胜之处。Asobi 由一大片黑色黑板漆界定，适合孩子伸手可及的范围，是一个富有创意的临时游戏装置，体现了日本的 “asobi “概念–游戏性和状态之间的空间。
An innovative addition to the property is “Flex,” a freestanding unit conceptualized during the pandemic. Modest in s
ze, it is multifunctional, serving variously as a studio apartment, a poolside dining room, and a workspace. Its compact design maximizes interior space, extending vertically to the exposed structure and horizontally onto an outdoor deck, creating a sense of openness. An intriguing personal touch by the husband-and-wife team behind the renovation is the Asobi, an interactive space for their toddler. Defined by a swath of black chalkboard paint tailored to the child’s reach, the Asobi served as a creative, temporary installation for play, embodying the Japanese concept of ‘asobi’—playfulness and the space between states.
