Lara Hedberg Deam, the founder of architecture and design magazine Dwell is the owner of this magnificent home located in Mill Valley, California. The house was recently renovated by her husband who work as an architect, Chris Deam, where he has created such a refreshing and inviting home with impeccable modern design.
Lara, Chris and their two beautiful children that they want private space : “We wanted to carve out space for the individuals—for Lara’s home office, for me to have a place to work, for each of the kids, for a smaller room where we could watch TV and have family time, and for more space to entertain.
The home plans were then adjusted and developed according to the needs and it seems that the strong indoor outdoor connection found at this house was a bonus. There is an interesting fact towards the door which opens towards the backyard and that is “The door weighs about 2,000 pounds (907 kilos), and it has its own foundation under the pivot point.
