Nestled into a sloping site, Aman 10 uses the hill’s natural grade to its advantage to capture views, create a daylight basement and control water runoff. A series of sod roofs cascade down the hill, blending the residence into the hillside. Slatted doors and walls create transparency, contrasted by a solid material palette of sandstone, redwood and bronze. Shed roofs define primary interior space joined by flat sod roofs capping transitional spaces.
While all interior spaces share a connection with the outdoors, unique signature features mark the residence’s primary spaces, including a curved, slatted dining room wall and the living room’s striking floor-to-ceiling metal fireplace. Interior elements such as ‘floating’ bathroom vanities, an integrated wood and stone interior stairway, and a custom granite kitchen sink reflect the designers’ detail-driven approach.
Exterior spaces share creative detailing to rival the interior, enticing users outdoors as they bolster the strong indoor-outdoor connection. An outside fireplace and seating area creates a dialogue with its interior counterparts and ‘lily pad’ steps traverse an outdoor water feature that flows by the master bedroom enticing users outdoors.
