This home, while certainly deserving the praise it receives for the architecture, caught our hearts by bringing those exterior themes inside – this sense of continuity is a feat many architects strive to create but this interior design is an inspirational success.
Terry & Terry Architects accomplished this continuity by placing an emphasis on materials and volumes. The innovative thing about this particular home, the Diamond Project House, is the natural and flowing interaction of these elements.
The red cedar ceilings are breathtaking, envy-inducing even. Those bold organic brush strokes add vibrancy to this relatively simple modern interior without overpowering it, thanks in part to warmly coordinating furniture and basic forms used throughout.
Innovative applications of exposed concrete make a huge impact. The fireplace is our favorite – clean and minimalist, no edges or ornamentation. It sits flush to the wall and lets the pitted, weathered material tell its story. The same treatment appears in a bedroom, this time with striking industrial overtones.
Do you like the current trajectory of modern architecture, and the interior design trends that follow? Though you will find plenty of examples demonstrating the emphasis on environmental juxtaposition similar to the Diamond Project House in San Francisco, we think this one is particularly well executed.
