The Mirrorhouse is perched on the hillside of Beverly Hills with downtown views to the east and views to Palos Verdes and the Pacific Ocean to the west. The floor plan is developed around 5 offset volumes, enclosing the private spaces of the house.  The negative space created by these volumes becomes the main living spaces and circulation, creating a free flowing indoor-outdoor living area that opens to the landscape and views in every direction - the entry garden and fountain to the east, a courtyard and reflecting pool to the west, an outdoor garden to the north, and an infinity edge pool reflects the views of the city grid to the south.  A high roof sits gently upon the 5 volumes, which are separated by floor to ceiling glazing & sliding glass doors that pocket away to provide uninterrupted connection between the interior and exterior.
