The project is located in the prestigious Doheny Estates neighborhood within the Bird Streets area of Los Angeles. These lots where designed and built to provide incredible city views from each individual lot while maintaining larger estate lots for privacy. The existing home had the intentions of the American classic Mid-Century style which had been compromised in the late 80’s early 90’s with a postmodern remodel. The project naturally became, in part, a re-envisioning that would reincorporate open floor plans, integration with nature, passive solar, separation of public/private spaces, and the needs of the American Family. Since a lot has changed in the last sixty years since this home was originally built and the Mid-Century movement began, the project also needed to feature contemporary elements in technology and culture.
