The Hill House by Johnston Marklee Architects

October 4, 2008

Located in the Pacific Palisades district of Los Angeles, California, the Hill House, designed by Johnston Marklee Architects enjoys canyon views towards Santa Monica.

From the architects:

The Hill House is designed under conditions generated by modern problems of building on the hillside. The site, an irregular shaped lot situated on an uneven downhill slope, offers panoramic views of Santa Monica Canyon. The design of the house utilizes the restriction of hillside and zoning ordinance to create a spatial and structural opportunity – adopting the zoning envelope as a building form. The dynamic form minimizes distinction between roof and wall planes while maximizing the distinction between interior and exterior.
