Sunset Strip Residence by Los Angeles based Mcclean Design Architects is an imposing residential project consisting of three units: luxury villa, glass garage and cozy guest house. According to the developing team, the house is approached by means of a gated driveway and guard house. The garage sits in a spot that enjoys spectacular views of the surrounding canyons and is glazed on both sides. All three buildings are connected by a water feature that leads the eye to a pool and spa at both ends. The main house is approached along the water feature by means of a short stair which leads to the front hallway, glazed and open on three sides with room for a significant art piece on the focal wall.
The social core of the house is the main living room, two stories tall and featuring spectacular views of the Los Angeles Basin and the ocean beyond. This interior incorporates a bar and glazed wine cellar as well as an elongated see-through fire place that is visible from the family room on the other side. The combined kitchen and family room has a more intimate feeling than the living room and appears to float over the water feature. The house is located in one of Los Angeles most famed neighborhoods, only minutes from Sunset Strip, yet still offers a peaceful natural environment the inhabitants can enjoy.
