Canon Drive Home

Before this spacious Beverly Hills home was completed, the owners came to Schoos design, unhappy with the plans that had been drawn for them.  The former design was a traditional Mediterranean villa but the owners wanted something more fresh and contemporary.  Schoos kept the basic design but moved the style in a transitional direction, simplifying and adding modern features such as square windows, modern railings, large doors and open sight lines. A dramatic floral white-on-white carved plaster relief was also added to the walls of the entry hall, bringing a dramatic organic touch into this imposing space.
