Jendretzki-Beverly-Hills-House-0

Argentine architect Pablo Jendretzki was hired to reconfigure a 1950′s Hal Levitt house located in Beverly Hills. The main goals: to open up the cramped mid-century interior and create a connection between the interior and exterior of the house.With both goals accomplished, it has become a stunning 5,000-square-foot home in California’s most famous locale.

The wide wood planks of the deck contrast with the bright blue color that the pool gives off, while also providing ample space for laying out and enjoying the sun.

The first step with making the indoor/outdoor connection was installing the same wood that’s on the floors inside, outside on the deck. That way, when the large sliding glass doors are open, the space really expands.

Floor to ceiling sliding glass doors dissolve the separation of spaces, while at the same time filling the home with light and fresh air.
