The client wanted a complete remodel and update of a mid-century modern on the renowned Bird Streets in the Hollywood Hills.

This new owner desired a bold, personally satisfying house, conducive to entertaining Hollywood style, but also required excellent resale potential, as his intent was to sell within two years. His interests were in a residence that maximized the stunning views while combining a sleekly modern aesthetic with an inventive and vibrant use of textures, colors and materials.

The challenge was to create indoor and outdoor living experiences that retained unobstructed views to the horizon line and sky. Our intent was to preserve the integrity of a mid-century classic while rejuvenating the structure with our contemporary uses of color, wood, light and water.

The aim was calm elegance and functionality, married with touches of 21st century whimsy as seen in the choice of sculptured art. Water is fully integrated into the design, from the infinity pool, and reflecting ponds, to the wet-edge waterfall along the walkway to the theater.

The only spaces not in the original footprint are the Master Bedroom, which floats out at the edge of the property, and the home theater that is tucked in beneath it sharing a wall and windows with the pool.
