Nakahouse in Hollywood
- Caroline Kurze
XTEN Architecture created the Nakahouse located on a West facing ridge in the Hollywood Hills, just below the Hollywood sign.
The existing home was remodeled as a series of interconnected terraced spaces on the downslope property. The interior was completely reconfigured however, 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 sundeck. Terraces were also added to the bedroom wing and the upper master bedroom suite to extend the interior spaces through floor to ceiling glass sliding panels that disappear into adjacent walls when open.
