Located in the Los Angeles Mountains, the project is a development of two large costume houses. The client expressed a love of mid-century architecture which was a spring board for the project. One house, the larger of the two, was to sit above the second and occupied by the owner. The second house was to be a rental to be sold at some future date. The designs were meant to have hints of the mid-century architecture both in two different expressions along with utilizing the expectations of current custom homes of today.
