Hollywood Hills Residence

Los Angeles, CA

This hillside site has views over Hollywood and to the ocean. Open living spaces were created in this 2,300 square foot house to take advantage of the intimate exterior of the house. An elegant pallet of minimal materials served to enhance the feeling of open and expansive space. The living, dining, kitchen area opens up to a front court, while the library begins to step up the hill to feel like a room with in a room. An open stair ascends a half flight to the garden at the back, and switches back to a landing at the bedrooms. The vertical sequence continues to the roof via a submarine-like ladder to a secret roof garden that affords views of Hollywood and the Pacific Ocean beyond.
