The unusual and repetitive design of this residence in Hollywood Hills is inspired by The Kimbell Art Museum in Texas which has a similar structure but with arched and rounded volumes. This house on the other hand features three simple volumes parallel to each connected and connected by gabled roofs. The house is located in Los Angeles and was designed by studio Standard Architecture. It’s perched on a cliff which gives it beautiful 180 degree views of the city and it has an interesting design overall. Its three white volumes have a symmetrical look, with large windows at the front and the rear sides and with sliding glass doors to connect them to the beautiful outdoor spaces.
