||Los Angeles, California
||Originally built in 1989 and once owned by Red Hot Chili Peppersâ€™ Anthony Kiedis, this 2,849-square-foot two-story home built on its rock and roll past to join the most notable modern homes of the Hollywood Hills. A renovation transformed it from a mish-mash of architectural styles into a light-filled hillside home that captures enormous views of the nearby Hollywood sign. The home had previously undergone multiple owners and renovations, giving it a mostly Southern California Mediterranean look with a Spanish tile roof and tiny windows. AUX worked within a budget to produce an impactful and transformative design without structurally changing the homeâ€™s rooflines. The main focus was on opening the house up to the Hollywood sign view and emphasizing indoor-outdoor living with lighter and brighter spaces. AUXâ€™s design used a strong contrast between a black exterior and a bright white, museum-quality interior. The home features glass walls (Fleetwood), upgraded cabinets and closets (Poliform), and installed luxury fixtures (Porcelanosa). The result is a completely new look for a home that anchors one of Los Angelesâ€™ most desirable streets.
