From the architect. Sitting on an aggressively sloping site in the Crestwood Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, the Jovanovic Residence combines a progressive and sustainable solution to an existing structure and addition. Through the utilization of a continuous foil wrap, various program elements including; a new guest suite, significant modifications to the master bedroom, exterior decking, and exterior facade, are synthesized together with a singular cohesive element.

Usually used to shade vegetation and outdoor space from insects and bugs, this PVC coated polyester woven yarn was re-formulated to sustainably and programmatically cast a new identity and energy on the house. Separated from the existing stucco finish, the durable skin protects the house from solar abuse and heat gain. In addition, rather than following the form directly, the skin reduces the geometries of the existing house to simplified, planar shapes. The resultant forms create a powerful dialogue between existing and new space. At times privacy screening / guardrail / shading device, the skin embraces the house to create new found relationships between indoor and outdoor and public and private.

Dear readers,

It seems there was a bit of confusing regarding some images. The "before" images are now correctly labeled.

rodney · September 17, 2010

The plan looks interesting, but the photos lack info, and the stuff they show isn't that great.

Doug C · September 17, 2010

A complex program which looks a bit confused in the end. Awkward interior columns which are not integrated into the spaces and a screening wrap that fails to integrate and tie together the many pieces of this building.

This is a surprisingly uninspiring project from this firm, which has done fine work in the past. In the second-to-last photo, Is that really that criss-crossing wood lattice stuff you can get from Home Depot? The last few photos I was hoping were "before" pictures from a re-model, but I guess not.

Brendan you cannot be serious. Of course they are before shots. Get some sleep.

I am tired of these "skins" wrapping program into "one" unit that have nothing to do with each other - no honesty in this. You wouldn't put a snickers, a twix, and m&m's in the same bag and call them one, new candy. when i see the "continuous foil wrap" creating a second envelope around a concrete wall, i question what it is actually doing. why does it have random apertures cut out to reveal concrete if it's job is to protect it? plus, PVC - not environmentally friendly.

AMEN!
