Charlap Hyman & Herrero

Los Angeles, CA


Residence 2018-003

This small concrete villa is submerged into a hillside in Los Angeles, CA. Upon approach, the house appears as a bridge spanning two large cylinders, pierced by a tree which extends through the roofline. A long narrow plan unfolds as a sequence of distinctly shaped indoor and outdoor rooms that are connected by a corridor lined with concealed storage. The central courtyard stretches the house’s footprint, creating an elongated volume oriented towards a view of the San Gabriel mountains. The roof of the structure includes a pool, kitchen, dining area, lounging area, and cantilevered lookout. Working with limited spatial constraints, each room is furnished distinctly to fit its function and characteristics.
