Fascinating modern pad in Los Angeles: Birch Residence

Birch Residence-Griffin Enright Architects-01-1 Kindesign

Birch Residence is a two story modern pad designed by Griffin Enright Architects, located on a flat, semi-urban site in the design district of Los Angeles, California. The entire house opens and a pool extends the geometry of the curved skylight. The elegantly designed home is comprised of 4,600 square feet of living space showcasing stunning vistas to the city and landscape beyond.

According to the architect, “the residence is compact, yet designed to create a sense of expanded volume. A double story central volume curves through the house, creating extended views and maximizing daylight from the skylight and sunshade above. A sculptural stair punctuates the sinuous movement of the house, while a glass bridge reconnects the two wings of the upstairs. An elegant palette of contrasting materials contributes to the expansive feeling of this home. The backyard has a courtyard feel and a curved pool echoes the form of the central volume drawing attention through the house.”
