Modern sustainable living on the Venice Canal
Situated on the Venice Canals of Los Angeles, California, Hover House 3 represents the third in the Hover House series by Glen Irani Architects. This series focuses on maximizing outdoor living on small lots by ‘hovering’ the building envelope above the grade level in order to create space for outdoor living environments. This series proposes that interior living space be reduced in favor of less resource-intensive outdoor living amenities. As material and labor costs increase in the coming decades, increasing outdoor functionality while decreasing indoor area in temperate climate zones is one solution to the rising cost and over-consumption of building resources.
