Contemporary Redesdale Residence in Silver Lake

Stairs can create the idea of high, getting higher and higher or seem to take you somewhere up, closer to the blue sky. Stairs can help you get somewhere upstairs and set you on a peak that dominates all the surroundings so that you have the impression that you are the ruler of that area. If you think of some famous tourist areas where you need to climb many stairs in order to get the final point then all these ideas about stairs and heights will come to your mind.

In Silver Lake, Los Angeles, USA there is a two level contemporary residence called Redesdale Residence which has been completed by the studio Space International. Stairs seem to be present all over the place here because it is a terraced interior levels construction. Its structure goes around three ½ levels which interlock in a central stairwell. The entrance level houses the guest room, the open kitchen, the dining area which is connected to a terraced wood deck due to some sliding doors. The second level accommodates the master suite, and the study area which has a spacious office desk with lots of cabinetry and decorated in warm colors like yellow and turquoise.

The white open kitchen is a space full of light while the dining area features a rustic wood table but where the views are wonderful. The outdoor terrace which has an aquatic design due to its white pieces of furniture and the views of the lake represents a relaxing oasis and a place where you can never get bored. All the terraced interior levels of the house leads you somewhere higher or open to some other attractive areas which are meant to overwhelm you.{pictures by Joshua White and Steve King }.
