Entry Description

The new 10,000 sq. ft. residence is located on a promontory with sweeping 180-degree views over Los Angeles from downtown to the ocean. The residence features three parallel volumes, all of the same height with steep pitched roofs. Two two-story wings flank the single-story 25ft tall center volume. Vein-cut Travertine floors connecting the interior with the exterior. The center volume features a board-formed fireplace and its walls and vaulted ceiling are fully clad with oak siding. An infinity pool cantilevers past the edge.
