Benedict Canyon Residence Los Angeles, CA

This 5,500 square foot private home is located in Benedict Canyon, an upscale neighborhood in the Hollywood Hills known for its exclusive residences.

The cold unadorned stone and concrete forms which follow the natural landscape paired with the creative use of natural light are reminiscent of the modernistic Tadao Ando style. The vast clear windows of the front public area allow for natural light and views to penetrate the interior by day. By night, floodlights mounted to the second level balcony uplight the interior ceiling casting a lantern like glow upon the exterior.
