Embracing the ambience of its natural setting, Mandeville Residence proposes a generous open-air sanctuary. Composed of contemporary linear volumes that sweep across grassy grounds, the home’s designers preserve a sense of eternal timelessness with gestures such as a familiar gabled roof and an immutable material palette. Elegantly realised using relaxed organic elements, the arrangement of white oak, western red cedar, terracotta and travertine imbues a comforting warmth that echoes the balmy climate of Los Angeles.
Its interior spaces enjoy vast views through glazing, while doors open to seamlessly extend living spaces across 325 square metres of covered patio. Blurring the boundary between indoor and outdoor has been aptly affected by interior designers Jamie Bush + Co’s application of our Scala Travertine, creating a single uninterrupted surface throughout the entire residence. Traversing the ground floor, travertine is distributed from the landing of the home’s grand curved staircase to wrapping the outdoor swimming pool and meeting the soft landscape with soothing ease.

Travertine is a natural limestone that arises from steaming hot springs and geological caves, and the resulting stone slabs are lightly touched and simply sawn by Eco Outdoor to retain their terrene character. Shaded with a distinct milky hint of alabaster and imparted with inimitable texture by centuries of mineral deposits, Eco Outdoor’s Scala Travertine presents a palpable slice of the outside world to the home – exhibiting nature’s imperfect tactility that both the company and the home’s designers strive to celebrate.
