Inside and outside merge into the beautiful Oak Pass Main House designed by Walker Workshop. An abundance of natural light, a minimalist interior design and different indoor and outdoor living spaces make this house an elegant architectural gem.
Walker Workshop designed an impressive residence in the hills of California.
Walker Workshop was founded in Los Angeles in 2010. Their goal and specialty is to create ‘modern structures that are warmly minimal with a careful consideration of light, space and the unique qualities of each project's location’. The architectural firm is highly practice-oriented and their approach is deeply rooted in craftsmanship and construction. ‘Important to our mission is the notion that a space, thoughtfully executed, can elevate the body and mind of its occupants. And while we create houses for rock stars, we also design for anyone who wants to live like one.’ The beautiful Oak Pass Main House in Beverly Hills that Walter Workshop realised is definitely a home for the stars according to Imagicasa. The special house consists of an 'upside down' program as the architects call it: The communal areas are upstairs and the bedrooms are buried in the hill under a green roof covered with plants and herbs. Thanks to the special architecture, many outdoor spaces and the overgrown roof, the villa blends in beautifully with the hilly landscape of Beverly Hills. Nearby there are more than 130 'Coast Live' oaks, hence the name of the project.

The facades consist mainly of ceiling-high sliding windows so there is an abundance of natural light inside. When the windows are slid open, interior and exterior spaces merge into one another, stimulating outdoor living. Characteristic of Walker Workshop’s style and approach, the interior was given a warm and minimalist look with lots of wood and a natural and neutral palette. Images courtesy of Walker Workshop
