True to its name, the Open House by Xten Architecture is incredibly spacious inside and has innumerable amazing views out onto the surrounding landscape from its luxurious Hollywood Hills vantage point.
Sharp angular lines define the house in space from the outside but also direct viewers to look back out once within the structure, past the pool and deck and to the cityscape below.
Comfortable interior spaces give way to narrow circulation areas that, in turn, open back up to the broader outside world.
Deeper within the house, spaces become increasingly private – tucked between the building itself, retaining walls and the hillside behind.
This is yet another example of taking a strangely sloped site and making the best of each of its site elements – the hillside behind the house, the vista out the front and everything in between.
