LA GRANGE RESIDENCE
West LA, CA
Located on a corner property in West Los Angeles, privacy and accessibility to natural light were of primary concern in relation to the driving spatial ideology based on the strict practices of Feng Shui requested by the Client. This ideology specified the location of the kitchen and gathering spaces, bedrooms and bathrooms and where penetrations were acceptable. As a result, the design strategy was to produce an inwardly focused form that allows light to penetrate down from the roof through a large opening in the interior created by two interlocking volumes: the public and the private. The intersection of these volumes is expressed on the exterior through material and color changes.
