This one-acre site a block away from Sunset Boulevard in Beverly Hills was full of possibility yet heavily challenged with abutting properties and a lack of privacy. The grand new residence by architect Kevin Clark and interior designer Daniel Cuevas is a study in classical materials and form. A series of garden courtyards and outdoor rooms extend views and circulation from within the home for an open yet intimate landscape. Formal terraces provide places for intimate and large scale entertaining. Walls of manicured hedges screen and direct views and create quiet spaces steps from busy streets. Large specimen Cork Oaks, Ficus, and Pines give the new garden a sense of age and permanence. A timeless palette of limestone, basalt, and marble walls and paving provide an elegant backdrop for the owners’ art collection, as described in Veranda Magazine.
