Winner of 2019 AIA Design Award

Completed in 2018, this Westlake Hills Duplex designed by Alterstudio Architects underwent a dramatic transformation by mixing light & airy with dark & moody design . The goal of the project was to create a more intimate environment using a more saturated and dramatic palette. Additionally it draws from warmer wood tones such as walnut alongside luxurious textures, particularly in navy, dark grey to emerald green. The end result is a elegant, timeless, and comfortable space conducive to cozying up with a book at the end of a long day.
