Tang Residence

Palos Verdes, California
3,200 sq ft

The project is located in Palos Verdes, a reclusive residential neighborhood between Los Angeles and Long Beach. The neighboring homes are built in the Mediterranean-Revival style due to tight controls over outward appearance by the local homeowner association. The client, however, expressed a desire to contrast the Mediterranean exterior with a contemporary interior. This project is a full interior renovation with 2,000 sqf added to the original 4,000 sqf. The interior design finds opportunities in the conventional pitched roof framing to create a wavy ceiling that mimics the ocean waves and cultivates a contemporary sensibility.
