This house is located on a spectacular lot above Sunset Strip with panoramic views of down town and west Los Angeles all the way to Santa Monica, the Pacific and Catalina Island. The design of the house maximizes access to the view such that all the main living spaces look out over it. The house is large almost 7000sf total and is divided in half by a water feature and a pool. Our client wanted a house designed around a long pool and this became the central design element of the project. It begins adjacent to the driveway as a water wall around which the entry sequence is wrapped. Upon ascending to the main level of the house, the water element becomes an ornamental pool before dropping into the spa below, after which it becomes a 75’-0” long lap pool the end of which is cantilevered over the slope into the view. The entry to the house is a glass bridge over the pool below. The master bedroom and study are located on one side of the pool, the living areas on the other. Below are several guestrooms, a media room and a four car garage. The living room and master bedroom are cantilevered over outdoor spaces below and appear to hover against the background of the city below. The palette of materials is soft contemporary with extensive use of concrete, wood and stone.

Building 209 is one of many historic buildings on the US Veterans Affairs Department’s (VA) West Los Angeles healthcare campus. Vacant for decades, it was falling into decay rather than serving its original purpose of healing our nation’s Veterans. Meanwhile, homelessness in Los Angeles County has become an epidemic, with 4,343 Veterans living on the streets.

For this suburban home, Dan Brunn, AIA, principal of Dan Brunn Architecture, injected the feeling of openness and of continuum, which was of utmost importance to the clients. As a means to negate the claustrophobic spaces of their primary residence, the architect developed a language to express the free flowing nature of the design.

The project site for this residence is a 7,500 sf cross slope lot in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles. The property is located near the top of a significant hill with panoramic views towards the Silver Lake Reservoir. The residence is situated at the rear of the property providing ample garden spaces at the front to buffer the exposure to the high traffic street. Due to the adjacency of neighboring properties, primary opportunities for open space occur toward the East and West, while views are primarily to the North within the parcel.
