Hollywood Hills Residence
This Hollywood Hills House, designed by Kristen Becker with design mentor Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig, is a 4,590 square-foot home inset at a 45 percent slope. Floors and stair treads are antique fumed oak; the master bath and bedroom upstairs are separated by a sliding screen made of woven copper strips. The building, composed of intersecting volumes that step down and hug the hillside, has walls that are cast-in-place concrete or clad in stained cedar siding. Operable Brombal steel windows and doors link public and private spaces and lead to panoramic views of downtown Los Angeles.
We don't plan on ever selling the house.
