The Various Views of the Streamhouse

Name: Streamhouse
Size: 2,100 square feet
Location: Nichols Canyon, Hollywood Hills

There's a plenty to admire and be inspired by within the walls of this Hollywood Hills home's tasteful interior: the neutral/natural colour palette, the Parsons-style end tables, the antique Florence Knoll desk, a Blackman Cruz Mantis chair, and a cozy corner library situated by a 3-sided fireplace that seems to beckon us. But it was sight of an architectural feature of an all glass floor view of the stream that runs below that blew our mind…

The glass floor mirrors the skylights above, giving the LA-based Kovac Architects designed home the appeal of a modernist tree house. But when you've got a scenic view, you'd be a fool not to take advantage of it, and the Streamhouse does an able job of affording its occupants views from above, below and across we could only imagine brings them great joy (and light) each day. All we know now is we have an architectural dream feature to one day to aspire to have within our own home!
