Designed by Abramson Teiger Lima Residence is located in Calabasas, California. The home is made up of a series of connected folding roofs and wall planes clad in metal. These are strategically placed to accentuate views of the canyon below and mountains beyond. At points the folded walls lift up to reveal poured-in-place concrete walls that cover much of the first floor spaces. Views to the nature reserve are framed by the concrete walls.
Built in a rectangle, the long side of the house is composed of large glass doors and windows that face the view. Open plan living spaces feature a high ceiling and clerestory windows to allow soft filtered light into the room. The rectangular living spaces is interrupted by two solid linear forms - a “wood box” and a “concrete wall”. These elements frame a patio, the kitchen and ends with the formal dining room. Sliding glass pocket doors open to unify the interior and exterior spaces.
