Jim Goldstein’s Skyspace by James Turrell, Beverly Crest House, California, USA
“Above Horizon” at Sheats-Goldstein house by John Lautner
Jim Goldstein Skyspace by James Turrell

This intriguing piece of architecture / art is located at the spectacular, John Lautner–designed Sheats-Goldstein house, now owned by Jim Goldstein. It is a concrete room built into the hillside, a skyspace called Above Horizon, by artist James Turrell, states LA Weekly. Turrell is known for spaces like this, with openings in the ceilings or walls and edges so thin it looks like there’s no separation between them and the sky. Carefully calibrated light shows play while you look up or out — Above Horizon has openings in the ceiling and wall, both programmed to open smoothly as you watch. The sky’s color and density appear to shift, sometimes quickly.

Oakpass Residence
The house is an example of an innovative solution to circumvent the 15 foot setback requirement for hillside residences. By elevating the structure the need for a tall retaining wall, 15 feet away from the structure was eliminated. Furthermore the intention was to minimize the impact on the beautiful natural site heavily wooded with oak trees.

Nakahouse
This is a reworking of a 1960’s hillside residence located on a ridge in the Hollywood Hills, just below the Hollywood sign. The existing home was built as a series of interconnected terraced spaces on the downslope property. Due to geotechnical, zoning and budget constraints the foundations and building footprint were maintained in the current design. The interior was completely reconfigured however, and the exterior was opened up to the hillside views.

Malibu House
Conceptually, the house functions as a ribbon that creates a continuous surface to be skated from the exterior to the interior. The house is then divided into three separate spaces: a public area with living room, dining, and kitchen; a private zone with bedroom and bath; and a dedicated area for skateboard practice.

Large 22-ft high custom sliding glass doors allow the interior and exterior to become one. The studio is separated from the house, connected only by an exterior bridge. Private spaces are treated as loft-like spaces capturing volume and views while maintaining privacy.
