Private Resident with Marvelous Views of the City of Angels

The Mirrorhouse is a private residence located in the Trousdale Estates of Beverly Hills, a city in Los Angeles County, California, in the United States. The home was designed by XTEN Architecture and completed in 2016, covering a total ground area of 8,000 square feet. It enjoys an incredible view of Downtown Los Angeles, as well as the Pacific Ocean.

Modern interior done in white

The challenge presented to XTEN Architecture was to create a simple, rational home that emphasized its connection with the surrounding landscape, all of this done in order to celebrate the unique lifestyle that Beverly Hills and Los Angeles have to offer.

The kitchen and living room are open and spacious, done in a stark white that enhances this sense of space, with accents done in neutral tones that play with contrast. These rooms open out to a terrace with a pool, and, beyond, the view of the city, creating a continuity and a dialogue between the interior and the exterior that is irresistible and exquisite.

Terrace with a pool

The entirety of the floor plan is developed around five volumes which enclose the private spaces of the house. Such an arrangement creates negative space, which in turn becomes the main living and circulating space, providing a free flowing travel route throughout the home, as well as views out to the exterior and the city.
