Now Reading: TrendHome: Nakahouse [Hollywood Hills]
Written 6 years ago by
TrendHome today is Nakahouse, located high in the Hollywood Hills, just below the Hollywood sign. Designed by LA based firm XTEN Architecture, the abstract remodel of a 1960’s hillside home was completely reconfigured, and the exterior was opened up to the hillside views and the natural beauty of the surroundings.
A large terrace was added to link the kitchen/ dining area with the living room, with a steel stair leading to a rooftop Jacuzzi deck . Terraces were also added to the bedroom wing and the upper master bedroom suite.
The exterior walls are smooth black plaster, designed to render the building as a singular sculptural object set within the lush natural setting. A series of abstract indoor-outdoor spaces with framed views to nature are rendered in white surfaces of various materials and finishes; lacquered cabinetry, matte white quartz, epoxy resin floors and decks.
