Located at the base of a large pine tree behind a Los Angeles canyon residence, this hybrid office/studio/recreational getaway, the private place of respite for an artist and nature lover, blends beautifully into its green urban backdrop.
The team, Christopher Kempel and Bridget Zimniski of Rockefeller Partners, selected the deep-oiled wood siding, mahogany windows, and a Rheinzink roof for their natural qualities and rich color palette.
Steps lead to an outdoor shower.
An office au nature.
