Superstar Hollywood couple Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have built an environmentally friendly modern farmhouse on a six-acre hilltop site above Los Angeles, California.
Kunis was born in Ukraine and Kutcher was from Iowa. The design-obsessed duo approached their passion project from a decidedly modest perspective. Kunis insisted that they wanted a home, not an estate.
Howard Backen of Backen & Gillam Architects and interior designer Vicky Charles of Charles & Co. were enlisted to create their meticulously planned dream family home.
The property is a barn house style farmhouse which consists of a main house connected to a guesthouse/entertainment barn, as well as a freestanding barbecue pavilion, all arranged along a central axis elaborately plotted to capture the views from, between, and through the various structures. Rugged materials palette, reclaimed wood, and glass provide the project with a contemporary yet rustic architectural theme.
The sustainable house is entirely powered by photovoltaics, concealed from view above the expansive porch that stretches along one side of the main structure.
