If you ever find yourself driving cross-country, you soon realize that in the middle of it all are views that can never be fully captured in photographs. For a moment, our materialistic lives seem so silly and foolish. So then, the tricky part is designing within these naturally inspiring environments, and placing structures that do not compete or take away. Marmol Radziner designed this dream home in Sun Valley, Idaho home, and with over 8700sf of space, the space plays homage to where it laid its roots.
The naturally derived color palette and material selections of stone veneer, red cedar siding, and bluestone flooring connect the interior spaces to several exterior decks and patios. Inside, plush textures and fabric selections add warmth to the bedrooms and family spaces. The living room and dining room are divided by a large stone fireplace. A second, more casual living space, also anchored by a stone fireplace, adjoins the kitchen. Custom cabinetry compliments freestanding furniture pieces, creating a tailored look to suit the clients’ modern aesthetic.
Established in Los Angeles by Leo Marmol and Ron Radziner in 1989, the team of architects, general contractors, cabinet makers, metal fabricators, and site supervisors provide a wide range of design services landscape design, interior design, furniture, and prefabricated housing. With the 1999 Palm Springs restoration of the celebrated Kaufmann House (originally designed by Richard Neutra in 1946) putting them on the map, the firm today takes on a breadth of projects from intimately scaled residences, to boutiques and large public and community-based projects. In 2004, Marmol Radziner was named the American Institute of Architects California Council’s Firm of the Year, honored as members of the Architectural Digest AD 100 and inducted into Interior Design 25th Anniversary Hall of Fame in 2009.
