The Los Angeles Design Group has recently completed a transformative residential renovation in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, California, reconfiguring a hermetically sealed box into a lightfilled,1,894 squarefoot, threestory home. The design draws inspiration from the iconic stepped form of Marcel Breuer’s former Whitney Museum in New York, yet in reverse. Whereas Breuer cantilevers his building toward the busy Manhattan street to provide shelter for a sunken courtyard garden, the LADG cantilevers the house in three steps over the rear yard, bringing a sense of enclosure to the rear yard against a steep hillside. Two of the house’s windows also nod to Breur, referencing his angular forms.Save this picture!© Nathaniel RileySave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Nathaniel RileyThe first window is a torqued cutout in the front facade that reorients the view from the master bedroom towards the Silver Lake Reservoir, providing a cinematic experience of the immediate surroundings. The second window juts out into the backyard, framing the hillside. Programmatically, the house itself is upside down, with an unusual splitlevel configuration that results in two floors in the front and two floors in the back. These levels are filled with bedrooms, bathrooms, and the study, while the newly constructed top floor—a wide open plinth that sits atop the split levels—contains the kitchen, living, and common areas. As a result, the social space normally adjacent to the yard is instead perched on top. The exterior facade of the house is predominantly charred cedar wood, with natural wood on select surfaces to emphasize the cuts made into an otherwise solid monolith.Save this picture!© Nathaniel RileyProject gallerySee allShow lessOOPEAA Wins 2017 Spotlight Prize for Emerging ArchitectsArchitecture NewsFoster + Partners’ Milan Apple Store to Feature Public Plaza and Waterfall EntranceArchitecture News Share Armstrong Avenue Residence / The LADGSave this projectSaveArmstrong Avenue Residence / The LADG Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year:  “COPY” Photographs Architects: The LADG Area Area of this architecture projectlast_img read more
