Victorian Cape Cod Residence in Highland Park

On a long and very steep hillside lot, possessing views of downtown Los Angeles and distant views of the Pacific Ocean, this approximately 3,500 square foot new Victorian Cape Cod residence is designed as a series interlocking "pavilions" slowly climbing and stepping their way up the steep hill. With the Writer's Loft and Master Suite being given the highest and most isolated and visually prominent locations on the lot, the lower level public and guest spaces all feed out to their own individual landscaped terraces, courtyards, and even an insular private interior courtyard. Traditional Cape Cod materials such as shingles and stone are used creatively while being given an additional Victorian Romantic edge with highlights of scattered industrial age detailing on both the exterior and interior. Abundant roof decks are provided for small intimate personal gatherings, city and ocean viewing, and organic gardening for this young energetic writer, performer, and chef.
