The house employs passive solar design and other low tech methods of climate control even as the open south elevation allows panoramic views of the Los Angeles basin. A partially concealed post and beam structure modulates the exterior and allows openings to span from floor to ceiling.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to That Treehouse Magic
Love the hilltop perch!
Margaret Everton added this to Merging into the Outdoors
If you're considering more permanently merging with the outdoors, consider a dwelling like this "tree house" by Standard, which uses solar design, climate control, and a post-and-beam structure to allow for floor-to-ceiling openings.
John Hill added this to Ribbon Houses, Wrapped in Style
The rear of this house provides views of the Los Angeles basin via outdoor spaces on two levels. Upstairs the floor surface turns up and over to become a roof/ceiling that helps shade the balcony and interior. This ribbon travels in the other direction as well, giving the impression of a flattened question mark.

Given the predilection for flat roofs in modern and contemporary architecture, most of these ribbons make right-angle turns. Projecting from the glass or other walls behind them, they may function as sun shades, but for the most part they are formal devices that stress continuity and break down traditional hierarchy. They also resemble symbols, inadvertently creating 2s, 5s, ?s, and S-shapes

The house responds to a strong idea of a plane that folds, and the realization (made ​​of wood) seems a great way to solve the project.
