Local architecture firm Urban Operations designs and erects this Los Angeles home on a steep hillside. Taking into consideration the difficult terrain, the firm builds a contemporary dwelling that sleekly communicates a sculptural aesthetic. While the abstractness of the building is mainly signaled by its angled walls and chaotic window placement, the "Le Corbusier-influenced roof deck" surely adds a communal component to the space.
The Los Angeles home is located in the Highland Park neighborhood. The all-white building is complex in its design and for its development, Urban Operations employed "strategic hillside engineering with a series of stepped programmatic volumes" that depended on "various code-generated orientations."
The end-design of the Los Angeles home proves to be sophisticated and complete.
