Spectacular Terraces and Views Adorn Hypnotizing Residence in California

by in Architecture

The impressive dwelling was built in Los Angeles, California, on a steep descending property withing the Hollywood Hills. Designed and constructed by Aaron Neubert Architects, the house was placed very close to the street to allow proper access to the foyer and the garage. 

The home's entry was developed to screen the courtyard and the stair hall from the passing cars' lights and noise.

The architects' design approach focused on creating transparency at the rear of the home with a fixed and operable floor and a glazing ceiling, opening the entire home to the pleasant environment. The panoramic views of Los Angeles and the adjacent Runyon Canyon and Wattles Canyon Parks are delighting the inhabitants of the beautiful home.

The middle level of the home was designed as an open space and creates several semi-autonomous but yet connected living spaces.  

The main stair core was configured as a "stair room" that mediates the three floors of the house. This room is fitted with varying scales and dimensions of the stairs, display areas and materials to enrich the experience. Here, the stair is presented as a sculptural element within the center of the home.

Together with the windows and the skylights, the stair core acts to naturally ventilate the residence and provide access to all floors. 

The stunning terraces and gardens encircling the house were also designed to complement the interiors. The travertine was installed within the interior and the exterior areas to create a natural transition between the two environments. The entry garden was framed and incorporated within the stair experience.
