Minimalist House by XTEN Architecture
There were forty-four sliding glass panels that are designed to disappear into a hidden pocket and allows for uninterrupted views and access to the exterior terrace and garden. There are also fixed glass wall, glass wall mirror, and light gray mirror glass panels that lend a light into the interior space. The house looks well integrated into the landscape and open to the city below. With all the glass walls of the house was open to a platform, open to the park and cinematic hill overlooking Los Angeles. Retaining wall configured to extend the first level living area into the landscape and garden to create a terrace on the second level. The front, side and rear of the house slides off the facade, the interior to open garden, views and hillside scenery. Which was designed by Openhouse Architecture XTEN. It is embedded into a narrow and sharply sloping lot in the Hollywood Hills. Glass, in various interpretations, is the primary wall of the cage material. The use of quartz entire floor of the house, deck and patio on the indoor-outdoor materiality. The building is complete but only a small amount applied in many ways throughout the project, promote the experience of continuous open space from interior to exterior. The glass wall visually counter weighted by the statue, the solid elements in the house rendered in stone, dark oak wood and plaster.
