The renovation and expansion of a sizable contemporary Spanish-style home is SAOTA's first venture into the residential narrative of Los Angeles California. The project involved a 1,189 square meter space and a structure that dates back to the 70s.
The Cape Town-based architectural firm decided "to strip the existing house back to its timber skeleton" with the intention of maximizing and opening up the space to the surrounding panoramic views. Situated in the neighborhood of Bel Air, the contemporary Spanish-style home offers dwellers glimpses to Downtown LA and the Pacific Ocean.
SAOTA focuses on providing a mixed material building that answers to the expectations of modernist design, one that attains to some extent its Spanish 70s origin and provides its residents with a degree of privacy.
