Perched high above the Hollywood hills the second Blue Jay Way residence represents refined contemporary living in the classic modernist style. Through its discreet entry arresting views to the city of LA are revealed. Composed of a sequence of courtyards and living spaces this home is fused to its site. The pool terrace is the nexus for living and entertaining. The layers of extensive landscaping enhance the home’s privacy while framing city views beyond. Architecturally this home explores the nature of duality; balancing the contrasting forces of solid and void and dark and light through its use of expressive materials and volumetric play.
