Swan

As you enter the Silver Lake Hills, at the south end of the lake, sits this engineering marvel.  Conforming to the strict structural hillside building codes of LA, the cantilevered studio projects impressively above the garage toward the Boulevard.  The hill side is contained by continuous retaining walls around the property.  They range from four feet to eighteen feet in height.  They also create part of the exposed concrete interior walls.   A 28 foot Fleetwood siding door system opens the living room completely to the urban hills side landscape.  The indoor outdoor nature of this house is balanced by the privacy the design.
