JMA mediterranean-kitchen


Home built by JMA (Jim Murphy and Associates); designed by Taylor Lombardo Architects. Photo credit: Chris Larrance.

A true Italian villa built in the foothills of Kenwood. This home was built using insulating foam blocks filled with concrete on all the exterior walls. We then plastered the interior and used a combination of stones to create a home that looks as if it is hundreds of years old. The effect is magnified by adding cast stone columns, stained concrete floors and distressed woodwork. The project includes the main home, separate garage with workout room, and two cabanas built on each end of an infinity edged pool.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

ds design studio added this to 10 Favorite Features of Spanish Revival Style
3. Stucco walls. Sometimes the walls are painted with layers of warm tones. Stucco is also found on kitchen hoods and fireplaces.
4. Wrought iron detailing. Metals tend to be heavy in Mediterranean style, and wrought iron has the visual weight to stand up to the dramatic flourishes elsewhere. This pot rack helps to define the space and lends a dramatic touch.
