Robson Rak channelled the 1920s Hollywood experience in their restoration of the exterior, with Spanish terracotta roof tiling and rendered white stucco texture. Twisted columns, a signature Mediterranean feature, line the entry, just as grand archways connect the spaces throughout the interior. The dramatic steel arched doorway is an ode to the home’s history, with arched relief detailing in the ceilings.
The hero of the home’s revival is the steel and travertine bar, inspired by a 1920’s speakeasy, which greets guests at the entryway of the residence. Under the stairwell, the bar creates an intimate space for guests to be entertained before they continue further into the home. The bar creates a ‘movie star’ narrative to be maintained throughout the floor plan, preferably with a martini in hand.
