Hollywood Houses always have that “je ne sais quoi” and this Laurel Hills Residence is no exception! Both interior and exterior have it all!
Modern architecture is always hand in hand with mid-century design. With that said, it is time to talk a little bit more about the architect David Thompson and his new house in Hollywood Hills. Designed by himself!
The main attention goes to the use of sustainable systems, and the natural environment that is present inside and outside this house.
According to Thompson, “At Laurel Hills, the spatial connection with nature elevates the inhabitants’ spiritual wellbeing. While simple uses of solar panels, rain barrels, and tankless water heaters help the architecture to regenerate the natural environment. “
David Thompson said that his home has a modernist sensibility, with traditions of Southern California modernism and contemporary architecture.
“The design makes a metaphorical reference to this geological history with a glass hallway connecting the guest pavilion to the living area. This bridge-like element follows the approximate path of the original stream, spanning over the gravel courtyard with the olive trees. Symbolizing the dry riverbed and thereby referencing and paying respect to the property’s past.”
David says that the key to building his home was to see beyond the confines of the house itself. And he does that in every single project that he signs. All Hollywood Houses are a dream and the architect followed this statement. We have all in order to continue our article!
To sum up, it all ends at night! With a fantastic view, of this fabulous house and the pool! You always want to provide the best for your family, and David did it.
