Propelled by the aspirations of the client, the stunningly bold design of this 6,065 sq. ft. luxury home was naturally conceived to meet the challenges and the physical constraints of its L-shaped lot and the steeply inclined terrain of its location. The result is a spectacular luxury residence that from the street provides an unassuming presence with a structure that seems to gently cascade down the hillside allowing each level to have superior and exclusive unobstructed panoramic views of the Los Angeles landscape overlooking the iconic Universal Studios within just a block of Lautner’s iconic Chemosphere and Errol Flynn’s infamous ‘Mulholland Farm’ ranch.
The MUL Residence was architected with a sunken profile and angular open concept design that pays homage to the principles of simplicity, beauty and serenity with a unique esthetic that separates it from the traditional architectural styles of the Hollywood Hills. Created as a contemporary masterpiece defined by the convergence of several trajectories including vertiginous terrain and the orientation of the building to provide spectacular panoramic jetliner views of Los Angeles, the residence is unmatched in its determined presence and style and is a true example of “home as art.”
This exquisite low-profile architectural estate was built to coincide with the strict guidelines imposed by the City of Los Angeles’s Mulholland Scenic Corridor Specific Plan and the Mulholland Scenic Parkway ordinance, which established land use controls, and a design review process tailored to ensure that development within the Parkway is compatible with the unique character of the Santa Monica Mountains. The plan was adopted by the Los Angeles City Council in 2003 to address the publics desire to restore the magnificent views and natural character of the Mulholland Drive setting that was being threatened by unrestricted development.
