Medley Reborn!

17925 Medley by Laura Jamet and Shawn Kuhne


At its inception in the early 1970s, the Medley home was featured in distinguished Architectural publications including the acclaimed architectural photographer Julius Shulman’s Coffee Table Book.  But, unfortunately, years of past alterations had resulted in an inconsistent, fragmented home, barely recognizable to the original look done by architect Stephen Gassman.

Upon acquiring the property, Vision&Form by Laura Jamét set out to harmoniously blend the original linear structure of this home, while adding fresh contemporary elements, and reconfiguring each space to maximize the exceptional views.  As a result, this residence was transformed into one of the most sought-after homes in the marketplace.

At the core of this transformation, Laura Jamét dramatically opened the center of the home by elevating the ceilings and adding expansive windows throughout to create an exceptionally inviting living/kitchen/dining great room flooded with natural sunlight and views from every angle.   Every detail in the house reflects style, inspiration and functionality, including the centrally located open kitchen, a creative space that truly defines the heart of this home.

The lavish master suite upstairs was reinvented from a storage room into an elegantly appointed large master bathroom with soaking tub overlooking incredible views and a large attached balcony offering a private sanctuary. The master bedroom location was configured specifically to take full advantage of the views with 2 massive window walls. High-end finishes were selected to exude a light airy feel throughout the 4 additional large bedrooms including a second master suite downstairs, 6 bathrooms, laundry and mudroom.

The backyard was transformed into an incredibly expansive yet secluded backyard where the sleek unobstructed design magnifies its extraordinary jetliner views, and offers multiple patios, grassy lawn and a spectacular pool to create the perfect backdrop for entertaining intimate gatherings and full-scale formal events.

The results of this sophisticated and exclusive residence were extremely well received and accolades came from real estate, architecture and media professionals alike.  In addition to providing a wonderful home for the new owners, it was also selected out of hundreds of top properties as the new location for Food Network’s latest television show.

Vision&Form by Laura Jamét has been dedicated to the development of quality homes and designing stunning spaces since 2003. Each home exudes contemporary sensibilities and functionality while combining elements of Southern California’s most characteristic architectural styles (ranging from Cape Cod to Modern to Mediterranean) resulting in warm, inviting, and livable homes that are each aesthetically distinctive.  To learn more about Vision&Form by Laura Jamét, please call (310) 899-0085 or email
