A Wonderful Pasadena Compound In It’s Own Oak Grove, $8M


The globally influential multi-disciplinary design firm rossdesign sometimes flies under the radar, and residential design is just one facet of the firm’s wide-ranging practice. This well-considered and beautifully executed compound near Pasadena’s Rose Bowl is a perfect example of their signature style– a spare but warm minimalism in a setting of native plants.

The main dwelling, guest house, office, and pool house are gathered around a swimming pool in a grove of ancient California oaks.

Inside, all the structures possess the same soaring volumes, seamlessly open to the outdoors.

In addition to the beautifully appointed baths, the pool house is a private spa of its own.

What We Love: We’re a pushover for vertical siding, and here the dark-stained exterior sets up its own repetitive relief in the strong sun. And in the office structure, the impeccable framing is as much decorative as structural.
