Founder of Dwell Magazine Reveals Her Mesmerising Family Home

Lara Hedberg Deam, the founder of architecture and design magazine Dwell is the owner of this magnificent home located in Mill Valley, California. Recently renovated by her husband, architect Chris Deam, the house has a fresh and inviting feel, not to mention an impeccable modern design. First of all, the crib had to be adapted to the needs of a growing family: Lara, Chris and their two beautiful children: We wanted to carve out space for the individuals—for Lara’s home office, for me to have a place to work, for each of the kids, for a smaller room where we could watch TV and have family time, and for more space to entertain- says Chris. The home plans were eventually developed accordingly while also creating a strong indoor-outdoor connection. An interesting element you may observe is the door which opens towards the backyard: The door weighs about 2,000 pounds (907 kilos), and it has its own foundation under the pivot point. In the first concept sketches it was really thin and elegant, but it just kept growing and growing and eventually the diagonal brace showed up—in the end, why not let the engineering show? Enjoy the photos and let yourself be inspired by this fresh and mesmerizing family home! (Photos by: Dustin Aksland)

    Am I the only one who hates the word “crib”???

    What is so wrong with the word “home”?

    Oh wait!!! That would be terrible — using a word that’s understood by every generation of reader! Can’t do that! Simply not “cool” (or should I say “dope”!)

    Every single picture is absolutely stunning. I love the colour of green that some of the house is painted. You can really tell this home is a passion project.

    Great! I really love the backyard and the green colors, the bathroom is good but I think I would add some colors, great just love it, I can use the idea for my home since my home’s size is equal…
