A Magnificent Hollywood Home With A Spectacular Skyline View

Every so often it’s nice to let your mind be mesmerized by the magnificent of what talented and creative minds can do. Today is one of those days. We’re looking at a wonderful creation of architecture studio Olson Kundig who worked on this project back in 2018. It’s a gorgeous private residence located in West Hollywood, US. The site is absolutely spectacular, offering splendid views of Los Angeles with its beautiful skyline, of the mountains and of the ocean. These views stood at the core of the design for this house.

The building is three levels tall and is defined a clean, simple and modern overall aesthetic. Concrete, glass and metal were used extensively throughout the house and give it a modern-industrial aesthetic but the architects made sure to make everything look refined and elegant.

They also focused a lot on the connection between the house and its immediate and distant surroundings. One of the main objectives was to offer panoramic views from all parts of the house and all levels. Another one was to seamlessly extend the indoor spaces onto a series of large terraces and other outdoor areas and to blur the boundaries between the interior and the outside.

Each of the three levels serves a separate function. The middle one is the main floor and houses the social areas. This is where the kitchen, dining room and living area are situated. The dining room leads outside onto a beautiful terrace with an infinity edge pool and a stunning view of the L.A. skyline. The private rooms are placed on the upper floor.

The master bedroom has a beautiful panorama and there’s also a home gym and access to the rooftop deck. The lower level is partially occupied by a big auto gallery and there’s also a game room and a media room. This is the more fun and recreational part of the house. It too enjoys a close connection to the outdoors and has access to a big terrace that extends over the hillside.
