This house is located on a spectacular lot above Sunset Strip with panoramic views of down town and west Los Angeles all the way to Santa Monica, the Pacific and Catalina Island. The design of  the house maximizes access to the view such that all the main living spaces look out over it. 

The  house is large almost 7000sf total and is divided in half by a water feature and  a pool.  Our client  wanted a house designed around a long pool and this  became  the central design element of the  project.  It begins  adjacent to  the driveway as a water wall around which the entry sequence is  wrapped.   Upon  ascending  to  the  main  level  of  the  house,  the  water  element  becomes  an  ornamental pool before dropping into the spa below, after which it becomes a 75’ -0” long lap pool  the end of which is cantilevered over the slope into the view.  The entry to the house is a glass  bridge over the pool below. The master bedroom and study are located on one side of the pool,  the  living  areas  on  the  other.  

Below  are  several  guestrooms,  a  media  room  and  a  four  car  garage.  The living room and master bedroom are cantilevered over outdoor spaces below and  appear  to  hover  against  the  background  of  the  city  below.  The  palette  of  materials  is  soft  contemporary with extensive use of concrete, wood and stone.
