Steven Shortridge, AIA, employed his renowned modernist sensibility to reimagine 1563 Doheny Drive as a contemporary homage to mid-century architecture. Punctuated by large volumes, the home's entry unfolds into a natural light-filled, open floor plan with high ceilings and utilizes a dual-sided fireplace as an ornament that divides dining from living areas. The kitchen, outfitted with a Wolf range and Sub-Zero refrigerator, is cleanly designed with banquet seating at the breakfast nook and an elongated countertop that works as a buffet surface or as a casual dining surface to view the serene backyard. The thoughtful master is adorned with cerused oak cabinetry which continues into the master closet extending the theme of continuity. 1563 Doheny Drive, in the heart of the Bird Streets, sits on a large street to street lot, providing exceptional privacy and expansive outdoor spaces including a flat grass pad with fire pit. The pool and spa deck include a built-in barbecue.
