Architect Brion Jeannette, who helped the Lindholms create their Yorba Linda home in 1988, again worked closely with the couple to realize their open design. The house has a 29-foot first-floor ceiling, with an open staircase and curved lines throughout. Giving it that grand scale yet still making it an intimate place where the couple’s family can visit and enjoy was a key element in Jeannette’s design.
“Open plans with high ceilings and large volumes have a tendency to appear massive from the exterior,” he explains. “I wanted the house to feel settled on its site and not imposing to the neighborhood. I also located the house on the site so that all sides of the home are fully exposed to natural light and ventilation. At the same time I wanted to create some intimate spaces and privacy from and for guests and their grandchildren.”
