  • DEX + Dwell = LA Home Tours 2016

    We are pleased to be a part of Dwell’s home tours this year. The always-popular Dwell Home Tour takes place over three days and will allow attendees to explore the pages of the magazine. Dwell Home Tours allow design seekers to immerse themselves dwellhometoursin “Dwell-like” domestic spaces.

    DEX Studio designed the Keeshen property to highlight warm, modern design with indoor-outdoor living for a small family with Midwestern roots. To accomplish this, DEX re-oriented the overall layout and added a second story to the original non-descript, single-story home. Using the firm’s signature visual language of texture and natural materials, the home has open, but idiosyncratic feel that stimulates the senses.

    DEX is heading east to Upland to explore the potential of a residential project nestled in the foothills of the Angeles National Forest.  Using the existing footprint of a 1950s split-level home, DEX is taking things up and out to better serve a growing young family.  The exterior material palette looks to the surrounding landscape for both desert and woodland influences, while the existing home lends itself to mid-century lines and detailing.
