“Ledgewood, a compact California modernist home nestled in the Hollywood Hills, was designed in 1961 by Robert Kennard, a pioneering Black architect who fought to open the profession to minorities and women. As with any renovation of a historic property, our challenge was to preserve the form and spirit of the original structure while gently ushering it into the 21st century. We believe the most meaningful way to respect great architecture is to demonstrate its adaptability to the rhythms and rituals of contemporary life.”
Breathing new life into this mid-century gem Studio Shamshiri used colour and natural materials to increase the connection between inside and out. Think verdant greens and earthy browns while leather, wood and handmade tiles add texture and interest.
