Abstract Redesigned 1960′s Hillside Home

This modern abstract house is located in Los Angeles, California, USA, just below the Hollywood sign. It was built in 2011, so it’s a fresh home. It was a project developed by XTEN Architecture, in collaboration with Axial Engineering Group and CY Geotech. The project area occupies 2700 sq ft and it was designed as a series of interconnected indoor-outdoor spaces.

The residence has an abstract design but contrary to your belief, it wasn’t a completely new project but a renovation and redesigning of a 1960’s house. The exterior of the house was kept approximately the same, with some changes. The interior of the house, on the other side, suffered a complete renovation and reconfiguration.

The exterior was opened up to the hillside views and several terraces were added. There’s a large terrace that links the kitchen and dining area with the living room and that has a steel staircase that leads to a rooftop sundeck. Several other terraces were added to the bedroom wing and the upper master bedroom suite. The house benefits from beautiful views of the Beechwood Canyon and the Griffith Park Observatory.

The floor-to-ceiling glass sliding panels also contribute to this. The exterior of the house in painted in black and white, creating a very elegant and abstract design. The interior is mostly white and it’s decorated with minimalist pieces of furniture and details.{found on archdaily}
