For architects and designers alike, marrying environmentally-friendly buildings with beauty and budgetary concerns is quite the contemporary accomplishment. Fortunately enough for Santa Monica-based Belzberg Architects, their Skyline Residence atop the formidable terrain of the Hollywood Hills is a true testament to the beauty of such an accomplishment.

The 5,800 square foot residence is comprised of both a main house and guest house, physically separated by an auto-court, which also function as a social gathering area. In fact, the southern face of the guest house doubles as a projection platform for evening viewings from the court. Such encouraged interaction between the two homes works to prevent both buildings from becoming too estranged from one another; the goal here is unity, not separation. Both buildings feature a folded exterior surface with a screen of lapped Extira to manage heat gain from direct sunlight. Also, floor to wall low e-glass on the east-facing bedroom opens up the home to the iconic views of downtown LA, Laurel Canyon, and the San Fernando Valley. All told, the Skyline Residence offers an idyllic Hollywood Hills living experience for several lucky individuals.
