The Yudell/Beebe House, 2010 :: Buzz Yudell, FAIA

Contemporary Architecture in harmony with nature!

A rare offering of synergy in design, craftsmanship, sustainability and location collaboratively created by Buzz Yudell & Tina Beebe. Realized for themselves with the intention of residing in the house for many years the design became a case study in creating a place of harmony and wonder while reaching for ambitious environmental goals, including working toward a net-zero energy house. The flexibility of the floor plan offers a comfortable platform for families, individuals or couples alike. The two-story space at the core of the house is not only environmentally critical, but functions as a kind of piazza which links all the living spaces. The primary level encompasses the indoor entertaining areas, including the living, dining room, a library/guest room, kitchen and garden room leading to the pool. The indoor spaces transition to the outdoors, while translucent canopies provide a shaded outdoor dining room and a separate “tearoom". The second floor is comprised of two large studio/office/bedrooms situated in the front of the house connected to the master area by a bridge/walkway gallery-like space linking all the rooms and creating a transitional zone. All rooms on both levels benefit from the careful washing of daylight and framed views of the drought-tolerant landscape. Since completion the house has been published and recognized internationally for both design and sustainability.

Mid-City Modern :: P XS Architects

This combined office and home with pool and integrated landscape is comprised of three systems: a long galvanized metal wall folds over to serve as the roof and carport; a series of material samples separated by glass forms the envelope; and an exposed concrete slab on the grade contains radiant heat, plumbing, electrical, and up-lighting. The 104-foot long wedge evolves from a 22-foot wide studio, through a combined kitchen-lounge-gallery, to an 11-foot wide bedroom at the eastern end. With no interior doors, two floating cores for storage and bathrooms provide the only spatial separation, aided by the production of distinct moods though the disposition of materials and the organization of lighting conditions. An 18-foot long ribbon window transforms traffic into a continuously changing cinematic event. A large “letter box” opening in the living area offers deep views of nature across neighboring backyards. Titled the Off-Use House by the architects, this unique space has been featured by Architecture, L.A. Architect, The Los Angeles Times, Metropolitan Home, and Sunset magazine.
