Stacked Volumes Nestled on the Hillside
The Getty View Residence is composed of three levels of stacked volumes that have each been assigned a unique exterior material. The various textures add architectural interest by breaking up the massing and highlighting the layered forms.
The main floor also contains a central area that includes a great room with an open kitchen and dining area. Auxiliary rooms surround this communal core. All are encased in an aluminum louver facade that balances privacy with an indoor/outdoor openness.
The top-level is wrapped in white stucco. The aluminum louver from the floor below is integrated into a section of the master suite, providing an operable solution for privacy. A perpendicular wing houses two additional bedrooms.
