Description:

Located in Rustic Canyon, Los Angeles, the 4,000 square foot Ward Residence captures views of the canyon and the surrounding hills. By integrating the structure within the hillside, the design of the home takes advantage of the steeply sloped lot, engaging both the dramatic vertical height as well as the surrounding landscape.

The structure comprises a series of heavy concrete bases nestled in the hillside, with lighter metal and glass pavilions floating above. The home is arranged into three separate volumes: public space containing the kitchen, living room, and dining areas, private space that contains the bedrooms, and a studio workspace.
