Perched on the edge of the Hollywood Hills
The Skyline Residence, designed by Belzberg Architects is located along a steep ridgeline in the Hollywood Hills of California. There were physical constraints that made it difficult to build on the property. The plot’s narrow expanse of land abuts steep, brush-covered hillside on two sides, with an easement flanking the Southwestern edge. If that were not enough, part of the land sits on granite, making excavation difficult. The architect decided that he needed to work with the land instead of fight it and create a narrow building that still maximizes views and sits lightly on the land with minimal to no grading.
