This construction is impressive in its simplicity, its proportions and its exposure in relation to the surrounding landscape. Nakahouse is an abstract remodel of a 1960′s hillside home located high in the Hollywood Hills, just below the Hollywood sign.The interior was entirely reconfigured by XTEN Architecture, terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows connect with the panoramic view from the steep hillside location.
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.
