GRIFFIN ENRIGHT ARCHITECTS: Hollywood Hills ResidenceModern Patio, Los Angeles
Two over-scaled window boxes cantilever over a private outdoor courtyard.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
For the transformation of this old house, the architects articulated two second-floor boxes capturing distant views. From the outside we can see that the glass is treated — like bifocals — with a translucent strip at the bottom to maintain privacy.
The courtyard was previously divided into three separate areas. "We made it one large space — essentially you enter into a front outdoor room — and had the living room [which was previously at the back of the house] and dining area open into the courtyard," says Griffin. The old brick walls were redone with stucco. The Louis Ghost Armchairs and Bubble Club Sofa are both by Philippe Starck for Kartell. The firepit is from Blomus.
