AIA|LA is proud to add “architect to the stars” Richard Landry, AIA of Landry Design Group's newly completed home to our Fall 2014 tour line up.
The home is so new it hasn’t even been photographed, be the first to tour this gem!
Located high above Sunset Strip, sits the ultimate party pad with incredible panoramic views from the Pacific Ocean to downtown Los Angeles. This modern gem is only a step away from the city's most venerable hot spots. Created by Landry Design Group, the Collingwood Residence utilizes a concave curved plan to capture these amazing views and to satisfy the client’s program.
In order to gain a larger landscaped front yard on this steep hillside lot, the motor court was raised an entire level to reduce the down-slope driveway and to hide the 5-car garage beneath it.
The exterior architecture is a striking combination of modern forms and materials. The glass stair tower rises from a serene reflecting pool, gently engaging the curved Italian limestone walls that penetrate the interior spaces.
The home is divided vertically on three levels. The main entrance, on the middle level, is through an oversized, pivoting door set in a large metal wall. The foyer overlooks the great room and city beyond. One level up is the generous master suite, with retractable glass walls throughout making the rooms and terraces feel as if they are floating high above the city. The Master bathroom and shower convert easily into unique outdoor rooms. The lower level of the home is for living and entertainment. The great room has a TV that rises from below and a dramatic wall of fire. The wet bar, screening room and spa provide extra luxury amenities for entertaining. All of the major rooms on the lower level open to the great lawn, free form pool, fire pit and covered loggia. This home expands far beyond what its square footage suggests.
“…Designing a great home has less to do with achieving stylistic authenticity than with creating a practical floor plan that will yield the appropriate exterior aesthetic and a pleasing volumetric rhythm.” Richard Landry
