Modern House

Private Resident with Marvelous Views of the City of Angels

By • Sep 7, 2018

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.

Large kitchen-living room area with a view

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.

Pool area with spectacular sea views

Conceived only for vacations, this house has unprecedented characteristics. The goal was to create a house with a huge living room, and with an impressive view of the sea, without losing the main characteristics of a home. Therefore, a single area was conceived, without any division, which means that the design of furniture, tables, chairs, sofas, etc. would subtly create the divisions of each zone. The house has an impressive width and length, and from all the rooms you can see the beautiful sea and the famous cliffs of the city of Tibau do Sul.
