Assembledge+ founder designs Laurel Hills Residence in Los Angeles for himself

Architecture firm Assembledge+ has completed a house in Los Angeles for its founder featuring glass walls that seem to completely disappear and open it up to its garden.

David Thompson and his practice Assembledge+ designed the residence in the foothills of Laurel Canyon, a neighbourhood located in a canyon of Hollywood Hills.

Because of its isolated setting, it aimed to create fluidity between indoors and outdoors that imagines the surrounding landscape as the exterior walls.

“The entire site here is treated as we are accustomed to treating interiors,” said Assembledge+.

“The surrounding trees and hills are taken to be the building envelope and the exterior walls of the house are reconceived as a series of partition walls.”
