Nestled at the end of a road in the verdant Hollywood Hills, the Beverly Grove Residence is a two-story, modestly sized home. The project was already under construction when Assembledge+ was approached to redesign the building exterior and reimagine its material palette.
Conceiving the building envelope as a canvas, Assembledge+ developed a composition that balances warmth and harmony with crisp tectonics and contrast.
Panels on the lower portion are painted in light grey and ground the residence. Transitioning across a horizontal band, the upper, Western Red Cedar siding connects the architecture with the natural environment and brings in color and warmth. At both levels, large windows and sliding doors are aligned to the adjacent panels and siding. A black roof fascia, articulated with a metal reveal, magnifies the material contrast and provides an organizing frame to the ensemble.
The southwest-facing outdoor patio extends the living area into the landscape, creating an outdoor entertaining room with expansive views of Los Angeles.
