住宅坐落在洛杉矶好莱坞山的一处悬崖上,包含三个坡顶小屋,由当地设计公司Standard Architecture设计完成,项目业主为Viewpoint Collection。房屋位于Forest Knoll路1471号,基地面积为0.4公顷,总建筑面积达929平米,可以俯瞰整个洛杉矶以及落日大道的美景。

Three gabled volumes form this residence that perches on a cliff in the Hollywood Hills neighbourhood of Los Angeles, designed by local practice Standard Architecture. The 10,000-square-foot (929-square-metre) house was designed by Standard Architecture and developer Viewpoint Collection. Located at 1471 Forest Knoll Drive, it occupies a one-acre (0.4 hectare) plot of land that features a promontory for sweeping views over Los Angeles and the Sunset Strip.

三个白色体块平行并置,通过三个暗色金属坡屋顶连接在一起。根据建筑师介绍,这种重复构建的灵感来自于路易斯·康1972年在德克萨斯建造的金贝尔美术馆。“金贝尔美术馆由一排排拱形结构组成,其间由较低的体块连接。”Standard Architecture联合创始人Jeffrey Allsbrook说道,“与金贝尔美术馆相同,Forest Knoll项目由一系列高耸的坡顶空间构成,空间之间设置低矮的连接体块。”

Three, parallel white volumes are linked together with a trio of dark metal gabled roofs. Standard Architecture said it based the repetitive construction on the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, which was completed by Louis Kahn in 1972. “The Kimbell Art Museum is composed of rows of vaulted structures with lower volumes between the vaults,” said the firm’s co-founder Jeffrey Allsbrook. “Like the museum, Forest Knoll is a series of high, gabled spaces with lower sections between.”

In each volume, large windows open up the top of the gables to expansive views – a feature the firm said also draws from Kahn’s art museum.”The lower volumes contain the service areas like stairs and powder rooms, similar to the Kimbell, which allows the vaulted spaces to be more open and airy,” the studio added.

Windows and sliding glass doors are placed on the front and rear walls of the residence. The back garden features patios, grassy areas and a trapezoid infinity pool that cantilevers past the edge of the property.

The central volume is double-height, rising 30 feet (nine metres), and contains an open-plan dining room and living room. The other two volumes are split into two storeys.

“在金贝尔项目中,拱顶体块的两端不含结构元素,因此可以完全打开。Forest Knoll住宅在坡顶结构的两端采用巨大的钢制框架,保证住户可以享受洛杉矶的惊人景观。”

“At the Kimbell, the ends of the vaults are not structural, which allows them to be open,” it continued. “At Forest Knoll there are large steel frames at the ends of the gabled structures, allowing for amazing views of Los Angeles.”

In the main living area, wood panelling extends from the ceiling to the walls and floors. Other sitting areas are incorporated onto the ground floor, as well as a home theatre room and a kitchen with grey counters.
