Contemporary Single-Storey Houses

Walker Workshop Designs a Clean-Cut Los Angeles Dwelling

— May 15, 2022 — Art & Design
US architectural practice Walker Workshop designs and builds a striking Los Angeles dwelling. Titled the 'Rustic Canyon' house, the structure occupies a shaded spot in southern California.

The Los Angeles dwelling spans a single floor and its exterior features straight angles, and clean-cut lines. From the outside, one may judge that the home spreads out over different interconnected volumes. There are a total of four wings and a central space. The Rustic Canyon home is meant to satisfy the needs of a couple and their two children. Walker Workshop also included substantial floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize the influx of light and also open the house to the beautiful outdoors—the site has lush California oak and sycamore trees.
