The Brentwood Residence by Studio William Hefner combines modern architecture with outdoor living. To reduce the size of the proposed 8,000 square foot structure, they chose to take some of the entertainment areas outdoors – a large courtyard that continues the living and dining rooms spaces, a sunken seating area with a fireplace, and a patio on the back of the house that goes the length of the family room and kitchen.

Large sliding glass doors make it easy to open the space up in a matter of moments to create the ultimate area for indoor/outdoor living. The upstairs features plenty of balconies to continue the home’s outdoor spaces. The house also features 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms and best of all, a pool. The palette remains fairly neutral inside and out with the use of warm woods, stone, concrete, and stucco.
