Design, Engineering + Build

NDD took Homer Delawie’s mid-century 1,000 sq.ft. 2 bedroom residence and expanded it into a 3-story 3,400 sq.ft. home, while retaining and highlighting as many original features as possible.

Designed and built by Nakhshab Design and Development (NDD), Revival is a trio of luxury modern residences inspired by the mid-century designs of architect Homer Delawie.

Located in Mission Hills, the Revival residences uniquely integrate and adapt mid-century modern design concepts for 21st century modern living.  The design inspiration for the trio was conceived from the original structure on the property which was designed by the iconic mid-century modern architect Homer Delawie in 1965.  The Delawie dwelling has been renovated and updated but the original Delawie design concepts and characteristics have been preserved in the home.  These same design concepts and features have also been translated to two new 4,400 square foot homes (The Jackdaw) built alongside the Delawie residence.  Together the trio showcases the revival of mid-century modern design in today’s built environment.

Finishes and elements found throughout Revival such as vast floor to ceiling windows and expansive sliding glass doors, wood floors and ceilings and travertine surfaces accentuate the classic modern characteristics of the homes.  These natural materials and vast views of the outdoors are also reflective of mid-century modern design philosophy of connecting the indoors with the outdoor spaces.

Each of the Revival residences is unique and features an exclusive collection of amenities such as a hydraulic lift elevator; computer controlled state of the art sound, intercom and security systems in every room; sunken living room; floating glass staircase; water features; steam showers;  luxurious kitchens and open space planning.

 

◦Our combination of architectural, structural design and skilled construction expertise allowed NDD along with the architect to maintain many of the key interior and exterior features of the historic home by mimicking many of the original structural and architectural specifications

◦The advanced structural design allowed the beams and columns to be minimized so the home could remain open to the canyon environment that surrounds it

◦Organic materials were used throughout the home to bring warmth to the home amidst the modern architecture

◦The former storage room was expertly transformed into extra living space complete with a bathroom, kitchenette and separate entrance

◦While there were over 2,000 square feet of additions made to the home, the restraint used during design and construction helped keep the original feeling of the home in tact.
