The project is a remodel of a 1975 Spanish Revival style house on a “Grey Gardens” California canyon site in the Hollywood Hills. The client is a renowned, syndicated photographer with a substantial art collection and a passion for 1930s and ‘40s Italian civic architecture. 

The design intention was to fulfill the California dream of indoor-outdoor living; to clarify and emphasize volumetric and spatial diversity; and to create a home that is, in essence, an exhibition of an eclectic collection of art and furnishings ranging from old masters to futurists.
