Gandiablasco’s passion for the outside reaches the Mediterranean climate of Beverly Hills, at the foot of the Santa Monica Mountains. A place where they say that dreams are fulfilled. A few kilometers away you can see the sinuous hills of Los Angeles crowned by the emblematic Hollywood sign.
In this idyllic location is Carla Ridge, the last residential project of Gandia Blasco, the Valencian experts in the outdoor furniture segment. A luxury residence designed in 2019 by the prestigious architect Noah Walker of the Walker Workshop studio, located on top of one of the hills, with attractive views of the pine valley and the Mediterranean nature that makes up the Californian landscape.
Carla Ridge is a mansion of minimalist aesthetics, whose architecture open to the outside, aims to maximize the potential of the spectacular views of the hill by extensive terraces that merge with the natural richness of the surroundings. The residence has two heights overlooking the Pacific Ocean, connected through a section covered with red cedar. On the ground floor there are communal areas such as the kitchen, the dining room and a large entrance.
The interior spaces of Carla Rigde are designed by the avant-garde design company, MASS Beverly and stand out for their contemporaneity and elegance. A decoration integrated with the spirit of the residence and that takes into account the great natural light that enters from the outside in each room through the sliding glass doors, where access is given to the spacious terraces of the mansion.
The large terraces of Carla Ridge form a continuous esplanade that, as a balcony, overlooks the stunning views of Beverly Hills. To equip them in line with the rest of this large project, the architect and the owners of the mansion have relied on the quality Gandiablasco’s designs.
Thus, to equip and beautify the exteriors of Carla Ridge, the Valencian firm has used the armchairs, sofas and coffee tables of one of its most emblematic collections: SOLANAS, in the special golden edition, designed by the architect Daniel Germani. The collection of outdoor furniture that shares in its design the architectural lines of the residence and brings elegance, precision and functionality. They complement the furniture of SOLANAS, the iconic black ENSOMBRA umbrellas, designed by Odosdesign, that form the perfect island where to share the best open-air evenings with friends and family.
In another area of the terrace, facing open windows to the natural landscape, Gandia Blasco has recreated a space of rest and contemplation through the FLAT TEXTIL chairs and the FLAT round chill bed, both designs by Mario Ruiz for Gandia Blasco. Combined in gray, turquoise blue and gold details that adapt to the aesthetics of the mansion and reinforce its appeal.
