Perched high in the prestigious Hollywood Bird Streets neighborhood, the Blue Jay Way Estate is a graceful and inviting presence on the hillside. It is an intimate and elegant retreat that takes maximum advantage of its site overlooking the City of Angels.

The architectural language of Blue Jay Way evolves from Los Angeles’ rich modernist legacy which acknowledges a forward-thinking culture and indoor/outdoor living. The home’s artful forms are composed of horizontal layers organized by three robust stone rubble walls. In between are “flying” roof planes and walls of steel-framed windows that invite in a panoramic view. A courtyard nestles the home into the natural hillside and provides a sheltered reprieve for more intimate gatherings with family and friends.

The simple, but timeless palette includes walls of rustic fieldstone rubble and warm wood ceiling planes tailored with burnished steel, rooted on a white board form concrete base. The ensemble creates a sculptural envelope that affixes its presence on the hillside and communicates substance and longevity. Blue Jay Way exudes the definitive LA lifestyle with a level of subtlety and precision that few homes can achieve.
