The Hover House floats gracefully on its pillar in Los Angeles, California. Although the design sounds quite precarious, it's perfectly safe and definitely modern.
The goal for this house, which is the third in a series of similar designs, is to make the most of the surrounding space, instead of covering it with concrete. This is why Glen Irani Architects built The Hover House with a floating design: the ground underneath is kept free for an additional area to meet or relax. Considering space is limited in a city as crowded as Los Angeles, this is a great way to avoid feeling claustrophobic in traditional housing designs.
The Hover House is a modern take on housing situated on smaller lots, but lived in by people who still enjoy a more natural environment.
