Benedict Canyon Residence

New construction of a hillside single-family residence, with detached pool structure / Beverly Hills (2012)

Located on a lot overlooking Benedict Canyon, the design strategy for the residence stemmed from a formal exploration of two site conditions: the Cul-de-Sac and the Hillside. The proposal develops a scheme shielded from the street (close) and projecting towards the hillside (open). The progression from the underground to the top floors is marked by openings, each establishing a distinct relationship to the outdoors; elements and materials “slipping” past each other accentuate the sense of projection towards the canyon beyond.

This project was conducted as a joint venture with a construction manager and delivered to the client as design + build; the design process, particularly as it related to details and interiors, continued throughout construction
