This House Defines a Seamless Connection Between Earth and Sky Los Angeles, United States
Aaron Neubert Architects presents t House, a residence for a young family perched atop Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills, offering commanding views of the San Fernando Valley, Griffith Park, and the iconic Hollywood Sign. This biophilic residence sublimely blends with its bucolic surroundings, cleverly adhering to strict hillside regulations, while proposing an innovative model for Southern California hillside developments.
Gracefully cascading down the steep terrain from the south, the home creates an inviting entry courtyard through the strategic separation from the adjacent slope, featuring descending terraced gardens that lead visitors to the glass-enclosed foyer. Upon entry, a vertical slot window unveils a striking three-story-high view perfectly aligned with Barham Boulevard to the north, forging a seamless connection between earth and sky. Complementing this vertical window system are telescoping glass doors spanning the width of the house, capturing a panoramic horizontal view of the nearby mountains. This novel “t” spatial configuration not only shapes the home’s layout, but also ensures an uninterrupted flow of awe-inspiring views throughout, extending to the pool area and distant landscape.
