Travertine Creates Revival Design for Upscale Development
Nestled in the Mission Hills area of San Diego, CA, is a trio of luxury modern residences - featuring open floor plans and natural materials - that are reflective of their habitat. The homes, which have been named the “Revival Collection,” were inspired by the mid-century architectural works of Homer Delawie - a renowned San Diego architect.
Nakhshab went on to explain that his firm came up with the concept of building into the hillside. “Our goal was to come in and build the most efficient homes,” he said. “We wanted to use natural materials, and we also wanted a minimal use of materials. We feel that you don’t need to overdo it to come up with beautiful styles.”
The spacious floor plans of the two 4,400-square-foot spec homes help to achieve a clean open look for each interior space. Further contributing to the overall design of each residence are large-format travertine floor tiles that create a fluid transition from room to room.
Both homes also feature a gas fireplace, fronted by a bench that runs the full length of the living room wall. The benches are made of black slate from India. The dark color of the slate, as well as the Walnut wood steps of a floating staircase, provide a nice accent to the travertine.
The 24- x 24-inch travertine tiles are also prominently used throughout the interior of the renovated Delawie home. Additonally, Brazilian Cherry floors were also employed in some areas of the living space. The rich tones of the wood complement the stone tiles - adding to the overall warm environment of the residence.
According to Nakhshab, it took approximately 15 months of construction to finish the work on all three residences. The stone materials were all supplied by Tosca Natural Stone of San Diego, CA. The stone installation was completed by a team from NDD.
