Last week brought Sebastian Construction Group another bright spot to counter the global uncertainty we’re all feeling, dealing with COVID-19. Our Miron Residence was featured in the Wall Street Journal‘s real estate section.

The project feature lauded architect Scott Specht’s “new Brutalist” design, focusing on the use of structural elements to control environmental impacts. (We announced the kick-off of this collaboration with Specht Architects way back in October 2016.)

“To eliminate a need for columns to hold up the overhangs, Mr. Specht designed a large, floating, pavilion roof, made of a highly engineered steel with an extremely thin edge, that hovers over both the interior sections of the house and the courtyard.”[Wall Street Journal, April 22, 2020]

“Water plays a large part in the design as well. Beginning at the entry, a narrow, pebbled fountain runs along a wall, with several small waterfalls. It stops at the house and then picks up again in back, flowing along the edge of the rectangular pool.”

Recently, we learned that this project was named a 2020 Record House by Architectural Record magazine. For a detailed description of the features of this award-winning home (including its impluvium, pictured below), visit Architectural Record.

Los Angeles interior design firm Magni Kalman created the Miron Residence’s interiors, while Dallas’ own Hocker Design Group crafted the property’s “manicured and formal” landscape architecture.
