A Celebrated LA Architect's Design Gets a Contemporary Remodel

Updated: Mar 25

It’s no secret that collaboration improves efficiency. This is especially true when it comes to large-scale projects like Fairway View, an expansive Los Angeles home renovation that required multiple teams working together to bring the vision to life.

For this specific property, the homeowner chose to work with renowned design collective RIOS for the interior, architecture, and landscape vision. The highly collaborative process with all teams under one parent company allowed decisions to be made faster, ultimately resulting in a shorter project timeline.


Fairway View represents the best in modern architecture: an airy open concept floor plan; a seamless integration of indoor and outdoor living spaces; and sleek, bold materials that make each design a show stopping statement.


While the renovation honors the new, the architects were careful not to override the existing design – one conceptualized by famed Los Angeles architect Paul Revere Williams in 1934. The 18,000-sq.-ft. home was transformed into an estate property with a contemporary remodel and a stately addition.



Overlooking the 17th and 18th fairways of the Bel Air Country Club golf course, the home boasts city views and is surrounded by lush landscaping. Among some of the home’s highlights include an endless pool, indoor-outdoor entertaining areas, and a home gym.


Aegean Limestone was used generously throughout the property juxtaposed with dark metal details for a truly modern, clean aesthetic.


“This project was a privilege and a joy to work on,” Maiden Stone’s Founder and President Sandra Jonas Desguin said. “Because all of the design teams were working in close collaboration, there was a real synergy that elevated the whole process.”

Some of the project’s collaborators included Richard Holz Inc. (General Contractor); De La Torre Design Studio (Interior Design); and eSquared Design (Lighting Design).
