Recognizing the profession of the clients and the site of the house where so many Hollywood legends have lived, the design originated by exploring the potentials of residential space created within an unending band of a single material; as if the rooms are wrapped and embraced within a continual strip of film. The undulated wrapping of the strip overlaps and departs to differentiate spaces, shape windows, skylights and gaps for natural light and air to flow through the entire house. The design uses strategic borrowed sceneries aimed for specific views from this Hollywood Hills location down towards the city.
