Developer Clive Robertson’s SAOTA contemporary masterpiece, 8201 Bellgave Place, was inspired by and sits adjacent to the Stahl House, a Modernist mansion described by the L.A. Conservancy as β€œone of the most iconic and photographed houses in the world.” Aptly named Bellgave, the jewel box-like β€œfloating” home is perched on a promontory high above the legendary Sunset Strip overlooking Laurel Canyon Boulevard on a cul-de-sac in the Hollywood Hills. Commanding panoramic jetliner views that stretch from downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean, this spectacular residence embodying the spirit of California modernism while advancing its design ethos. Inclusive of spectacular outdoor terraces it encompasses over 14,000 sq. ft. of curated living space that offer a seamless fusion of indoor and outdoor environments, surrounded by imported materials like Italian split-face travertine and French white oak, paying homage to the architectural heritage of mid-century Los Angeles.

South African architecture firm SAOTA’s design for Bellgave reprises and advances the pioneering innovations of Los Angeles’ Case Study Houses, seamlessly integrating modernist principles with contemporary luxury. Skillfully lifted the structure on pillars and caissons, the design allows for a series of horizontal planes that seem to extend the house from the cliff edge into the sky. The architectural layout, with its intersecting curves at the entrance, evolves into a rectilinear composition that frames the expansive city grid below. This spatial arrangement is mirrored in the seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor environments, from intimate al-fresco settings to the cantilevered glass-box lounge that extends over the rim-flow infinity pool, and lush landscaping, inviting residents to embrace the breathtaking views and entertain on a grand scale.

Meticulously crafted to be the pinnacle of modern luxury, the entrance sets a dramatic tone with high, arcing walls, while the main living spaces, organized by the city’s grid, offer a profound connection to the urban landscape below. The material palette, featuring stucco, travertine, and timber floors, pays tribute to the mid-century architectural heritage of Los Angeles, enriched by chiseled Jerusalem limestone, a nod to the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Mediterranean-inspired landscape that complements the Southern California climate. Inside, the juxtaposition of marble and light woods with the property’s white exterior finishes underscores the home’s luxurious simplicity, while mature olive trees in the landscaping add a touch of natural elegance. This home is not just a residence; it’s a statement of historical reverence and forward-thinking design with cantilevered rooms that seem to float above the cityscape, and large expanses of glass that frame the staggering views. As a contemporary evolution of California mid-century modernism, Bellgave honors its architectural precedents while pushing the boundaries of innovative design, offering a timeless aesthetic and vision for the future.
