1200 sq. ft. addition
With an existing house sited on flat ground above a canyon in Los Angeles, the clients were interested in taking better advantage of their breathtaking views of the Santa Monica Mountains, Stone Canyon Reservoir, and downtown Los Angeles via the addition of a new master suite and family room. The site proved to be both dynamic and difficult as we looked at options that would have placed the addition: on the hillside; in an excavation in their patio; or in two stories replacing the existing master suite.
200 sq. ft. addition.
this project was for a new master bed/bath in the attic of an existing structure. facing the backyard, the clients asked if we could do something "unexpected", a "surprise" when you come into the backyard. we are currently exploring the idea of a cube emerging from their existing roof. other design intentions include maximization of light without heat gain, and making the attic space feel connected to the rest of the house.
