Dwell on Design Exclusive House Tour: Deronda Residence

I couldn’t attend Dwell on Design this year, but I was lucky enough to be able to secure a few photographers to capture some of the house tours. Over the next week, you can see these exclusive house tour photos right here on Design Milk!

Let’s go from East to West, starting with this modern home in the Hollywood hills. The Deronda house was designed by Michael Ferguson of Space International.

From the architect:

Situated near the apex of Beachwood Canyon, the 2800 sf Deronda Drive Residence is comprised of two main rectangular volumes, shifted off axis from one another to accentuate their programmatic difference. The public, living areas of the house are situated on the ridge of the site, so as to take advantage of flanking outdoor spaces, designed as extensions of the living and dining areas when connected via a series of large sliding glass openings. The more private, sleeping and bathing areas, are housed in a cantilevered bar which hovers over a parking court and floats amidst the treetops at the perimeter of the property. A newly defined plaster shell, folds and undulates around these public and private volumes of the house, mitigating different degrees of privacy and exposure to the picturesque surroundings and skyline views.
