Architecture Design of Serenity House

Description About The Project

Serenity house designed by Whipple Russell is a modern canvas upon which this artist and engineer could play out the strong vision and sense of creative adventure. The Vintage community requires all home construction to be one story in height. Whislt, the clients wanted the space of a two-story house, so the solution was to dig down. The design includes a main entry floor and a lower floor, which is naturally lit by large front and rear sunken courtyards. These two courtyards are strategically placed to flood both levels with sunlight, through the abundant use of glass, including glass floors and walkways.

The front façade displays a graphical image on film that applied to the glass, creating a translucent mural capturing the motion and colors of the desert hills, while providing privacy from the street. Once entering the house, views open up in every direction. Down through the bridge’s glass floor to see the lower level and reflecting pond, left and right, the main living areas, and ahead, out to the patio, pool, golf course, and mountains.

In addition to this, the Serenity house offers an endless high end amenities for the luxurious living. Includes The Ultimate Car Museum, Wine Tower, pool and patio, Powder Rooms, Art Studios/ Offices, Spa Amenities, Home Theater, Elevator Mural… Surely, the house is a really dream house for anyone to enjoy the life.

The Architecture Design Project Information:

As in most Whipple Russell Architects’ designs, water greets a guest at the entry. In one of the two street side reflecting ponds stands Arete, a bold, energetic piece by sculptor Richard Erdman, commissioned along with four others for the house.
Besides, from the main level of the Serenity House, a wide glass walkway leads out to the pool and patio area–an expanse of sparkling water.

To the left, at the water’s far edge, stands Spira, a tall, strong, yet lively piece of Erdman sculpture that leads the eye to the impressive view of the mountains.

Access to the pool and patios of Serenity House from the lower level takes below the glass walkway. Through a quiet, secluded Zen garden, and then up a stairway to the patio. The rock garden features a modern quintet of waterfalls and a single sculpted tree.

A private courtyard of Serenity House off the primary suite features a sculpture by Dorit Levinstein called Renoir Dancers XL.
Theater guests of the Serenity House will settle into motorized and reclining custom-made Elite HTS seating and look up to a 161” wide by 91” tall Samsung Wall screen. The seats’ red leather is dyed to match the famous Ferrari red.

Another passion that enlivens the house is one for cars. Fast cars. And classic cars. Hence, an open display garage was designed that can be viewed from the entire lower level of this Serenity House.
The butterfly piece above the bed is by artist Michelle McKinney, commissioned / curated by Lisa. Made of painted wire mesh, the 7 foot wide vortex work depicts leaves, flowers, and butterflies in motion.

The Serenity House Gallery:

Text by the Architects: The desert is open space and long views, but also the close-up, detailed perfection of the cactus flower. It is nature’s serene minimalism. This is the setting for our project inside the gated community of The Vintage in Indian Wells, California.
