House in Los Angeles II
Los Angeles, California
2017, In Permits

House in Los Angeles II is the second in a series of three projects that think through the relationship between a casual Southern California lifestyle and the residential architecture that houses it. If SoCal life is casual, how might architecture find a similar state of relaxation? Perhaps it is possible to think of relaxation in terms of the degree of coordination between rooms, and the degree to which they are disciplined by an overarching, formalized mass. For this house in the Hollywood Hills, some rooms are delineated as figures in plan: C- Land G-shapes limned by walls. Other rooms are formed simply by the leftover space as these shapes are packed together in sufficiently tight clusters.
