This project is an addition and extensive renovation of an existing single-family home located on a wooded down-slope site in Santa Monica Canyon. The client envisioned their residence as having a “contemporary tree-house” feel which would be integrated with the natural setting of their canyon property. The experience of entering this secluded oasis is from above, amidst a canopy of trees which hides the property from the street. The home is detailed with sustainably harvested tropical hardwoods and employs green design principles throughout.

Location: Santa Monica Canyon, CA
