LR2 Residence

Located in California, this award-winning house overlooks Pasadena and its adjacent mountains from its perch on the hillside. Idealised by Santa Monica-based architecture practice Montalba Architects, the 4,200 square-foot house is made up of several separate volumes integrated into the downhill slope of the lot, creating open spaces between the structures for integrated planting areas, covered terraces, and dial linear water features for passive cooling. The house includes suites, an office, a gym and a cinema room, as well as numerous outdoor areas, all offering views of the surrounding hills and valley.
