perfect curves

This project called for the complete renovation of a existing home in the Trousdale Estates section of Beverly Hills, California. Paul Trousdale bought 410 acres of the un-built property from the Doheny Estate in 1954 and soon after began developing sprawling view properties limited to single-level homes.

Enlisting Dennis Gibbens Architects the residence, which started out fifty years ago as a relatively modest home, is now enjoying another life; it is a contemporary LA house for very worldly clients. Other than the front courtyard, the majority of the exterior is a simple affair with sweeping white stucco curves and a long serpentine glass wall reflecting the generous scope of the views; the house is something of a gateway to the landscape. It is so easy to simply pass through it, to be drawn to the outside – to the pool, the garden, and the mountains in the distance. With that kind of view, the one-story exterior architecture assumes a modest position relative to the dramatic setting. In contrast, the experience of the interior architecture is complex in its spatial flow and richness of materials and refined details.
