Aaron Neubert Architects has completed the ‘t House,’ a residence for a young family located in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills, overlooking the San Fernando Valley and Griffith Park. Described by the design team as an “innovative model for Southern California hillside developments,” the residence blends an adherence to strict hillside regulations with an incorporation of the site’s natural surroundings.

Visitors approach the main entrance through terraced gardens, leading to a glass-enclosed foyer. On the opposite side of the house, addressing a steep slope, a vertical window spans three levels aligning perfectly with Barham Boulevard while giving the scheme its ‘t’ moniker.

Inside, the residence contains three levels. The middle level houses the living space, including the kitchen, dining area, and office. The lower level features a guest suite and an entertainment zone opening up to the pool and terrace. Meanwhile, the top level holds bedrooms and a garage.

Externally, the home is defined by sustainable charcoal-stained cedar siding and terracotta bricks; materials expected to age gracefully while complementing the hillside. Meanwhile, the interior palette features exposed Douglas fir beams, limestone flooring, and oak finishes, providing a warm, inviting ambiance.

The natural material palette is part of a wider sustainability strategy which also includes drought-tolerant plants to minimize water consumption and promote local biodiversity, and a rainwater harvesting system to collect and store rainwater for irrigation and non-potable use.
