Project Description

2012 RADA
Custom / More Than 3,000 Square Feet / Merit

What’s not to love about a C-shaped glass house that faces south, toward views of the Pacific Ocean and the Hollywood Hills? Citing the clear plan and beautiful surfaces, our judges remarked that this house feels welcoming in its swish setting. Zoltan E. Pali, FAIA, created a cantilevered glass box wrapped in a wood-and-resin rainscreen. The public spaces and master bedroom open seamlessly to the courtyard and pool. Secondary bedrooms are on the back side, each with their own little patio.

“The client wanted a warm, textural feel throughout the house,” Pali says. A silver travertine entry wall slips through the front door and follows the skylit hall all the way down. Water flows over a stairwell wall covered in dark, irregular mosaic tiles. Floors are wire-brushed white oak. “Materials are used in a painterly way,” a judge said. “It doesn’t feel overwhelming or forced.”
