"The house occupies a steep bowl-like site rising and spreading wider from the street; the sloping roof forms reflect this topography, and lift to allow views out into the trees and sky above," explain the architects.
"Our inspiration for this home came from the natural determinants and functional, spatial goals particularly expressed by Frank Lloyd Wright and John Lautner," they continue. "The calmness and repose engendered by the spaces within give us a 'center of gravity;' one that is quite private and inspiring to find within a huge and dynamic city. Visitors feel it, too."
Featuring four bedrooms, two baths, and spacious living areas, the dwelling also includes surprising spaces and innovative details which draw upon the transformative residential projects the architects have previously collaborated on, including the impressive restoration of Lloyd Wright’s Ennis House.
