Laurel Hills Residence

Located in the foothills of the Fryman Canyon Estates in Studio City, the Laurel Hills Residence seeks to create a residential oasis in the heart of Los Angeles.

This single story residence takes full advantage of the almost ½ acre site to allow the living experience to blend seamlessly with the landscape.  Several walls of glass disappear to extend the living spaces with the lush surroundings and curated series of outdoor living rooms.

The scheme is made of three distinct pavilions that are larger volumes comprised of charcoal coloured oversized board and batten cement board panels.  The larger volumes are connected by glass bridges and western red cedar volumes that carve out the larger forms to create the harmonious composition.
