Orange Street Studio Landscape
Created by developer Martin Livingston of LA Hillside Homes and architect Ivan Ivanov of StudioIvanov, this iconic custom home comes with a timeless materiality, refined detailing and a strong interface with the spectacular views and landscape.
The project takes equal inspiration from the rich architectural heritage of Los Angeles and its mid-century homes, as well as from the Mediterranean estates along the slopes of Côte d’Azur. The spirit of the classic movie "To Catch A Thief" with its iconic scenes set in Nice’s striking landscapes as well as John Lautner’s dramatic use of stone in his LA hillside houses, were some of the defining influences introduced to the project by the client.
A private driveway generously landscaped with oak trees and lush vegetation provides for an entry procession reminiscent of that of a Mediterranean hillside estate. Montana Granite stone walls with wide expanses of frameless glass and operable sliders, seamlessly integrate the interiors and exteriors at the living areas. The top level features cantilevered bedroom suites flying over the trees, each boasting a distinctly unique view.
