Tujunga, Los Angeles, CA
The Mountain House is a house and art studio with native landscaping, originally conceived as a safe haven from fire in a green canyon outside of Los Angeles. Composed of a simple rectangular volume with walls of glazing angled to maximize views and fit within the zoning envelope, the roofline echoes the mountain ridges on either side of the canyon. As part of the client’s interest in sustainable building systems, an analysis of cost and environmental impact of the various systems was completed.
