Strikingly Steep: Striking house is located on the gradient of a steep hill in California

14 March, 2014  |  Exterior, House Interior

On the side of a steep mountain is one of the last places you would expect to find a home construction. Yet, Californian firm Jones Partners Architecture have defied gravity by building a one-storey house in Los Angeles, California, USA on a very treacherous looking hillside. Surrounded by vegetation and a steep view, this modern house has a black exterior that blends nicely into the house’s backdrop. It has floor to ceiling windows at the front of the house with the addition of sliding doors that access the balcony. Inside, the interior is warm and invigorating with a balanced amount of wood being used in the construction and decor of the house. The tall ceilings really open out the space, while the pillars add a beautiful structural feature to the room.
