Contemporary barn house with inviting backyard

Contemporary Barn-Koffka Phakos Design-01-1 Kindesign

This stunning contemporary property is an extensive remodel and second story addition of a previously non-descript home in the Sherman Oaks Hills area of Los Angeles, California by . The architects expanded the residence to a spacious living area of 5,000 square feet. The client, an entertainment executive, had envisioned the home to be a casual hang-out place for herself, her husband and two daughters, a retreat from her high-pressure work, but also a house suitable for large parties from backyard barbeques with friends to political fundraisers. As aesthetic guidance, the client gave the architects the motto or “Contemporary Barn.” The architects created a children’s wing on one side of the house with its own den for games and lounging with friends, and a second story on the other side of the house with a secluded master suite and gym. Both flank the “Barn,” a large open space with several seating areas and direct access to a large eat-in kitchen and the inviting back yard.
