The unusual and repetitive design of this Hollywood Hills residence is inspired by the Kimbell Art Museum in Texas, which is similar in structure but with domed and rounded volumes. The house is located in Los Angeles and was designed by Studio Standard Architecture.
You can see three simple volumes that are parallel to each other and connected by gable roofs. The house is on a cliff and offers a beautiful 180 degree view of the city. The volumes appear symmetrical, with large windows at the front and back and sliding glass doors to connect them with the lovely outside areas.
The central volume houses the open living and dining area and has a double ceiling height, which creates a very airy and spacious atmosphere. There is also a kitchen and home theater, plus a series of large pivoting glass doors that connect the interiors to an open terrace. The rear garden is framed at the outer edge by a trapezoidal cantilevered infinity pool. The rest of the space is filled with patios and casual lounge areas surrounded by greenery.
The other two volumes frame the central living area and are divided into two levels. They contain four bedrooms on the upper floor, which are connected to a shared terrace. They are light, airy and inviting and enjoy a wonderful view and a close connection to nature.
