Clean lines and tactile details harness an underlying sense of quiet sophistication in the Manhattan Beach project by Mandy Graham.
A Californian family home renovated in the late 1990s felt disconnected from its facade before designer Mandy Graham’s intervention, which saw her take an equally refined and restrained approach to transform each space. A reinterpretation of an existing boxy narrative has resulted in a home that now reflects features of postmodernism through large blocks of stone, softened by a signature arch motif.
Elements of travertine are repeated throughout the home, including within the arches of the dining room. Here, an antique Swedish dining table complements vintage Matteo Grassi chairs.
By reconceptualising Walnut House’s exterior linear forms, Mandy Graham has articulated distinctive, fluid movements through corresponding geometry, creating thoughtful moments within.
