A home for a professional couple with three young children, this design balances a sophisticated, entertainment-oriented lifestyle with the needs of an active family. As the house is contained to a standard suburban lot, the plan is finessed to achieve these divergent interests in several ways. Organized around a central courtyard, rooms on the ground level are connected by wide openings and floor-to-ceiling glass windows and walls, allowing guests to move freely through the flowing space and enabling parents to easily keep an eye on the kids. Now containing a theater, office, play area, and two guest bedrooms, the basement offers opportunity to accommodate the youngsters expanding spatial requirements they get older. Throughout the house, luxurious furnishings and finishes artisan brick inside and out, marble and onyx, walnut and oak elegantly maintain the modern aesthetic.

Joseph Dangaran is one of the founding partners of the Los Angeles based architecture and interior design firm, Woods + Dangaran. He earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Southern California before working at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Marmol Radziner, where he honed his approach to modern architecture. When starting Woods + Dangaran just over 10 years ago, Joseph and business partner Brett Woods made the commitment to create modern homes through dialogue and exploration while collaborating closely with clients through the design process. “If you’re going to create something physical in this world, it should have intention and craft. Architecture should communicate its construction, its systems, and its soul to the user.”

It should create a healthy dialogue between people, so you can stand back and appreciate what it does for society.”
