Oak Pass Main House, California
Located in the middle of a protected grove of 130 beautiful old Coast Live Oak trees sits the Oak Pass Main House in Beverley Hills.
8 November, 2015
Designed by Californian architects Walker Workshop, this massive low-lying concrete structure opens up to the garden and the expansive views.
Whilst design and construction around the ornate Oak trees was challenging, they help create a delicate balance between the hard-edged architecture and the landscape. The large spans of glass not only blur the lines between the inside and out, but also break up the concrete giving the impression of a light-weight structure.
The bedrooms are buried beneath a green, grassy roof of edible herbs while the communal areas take advantage of the tree tops, canyon views and beyond.
To complete the landscape, a seventy five foot swimming pool, with infinity edges bisects the concrete house and is positioned just below one of the largest Oak trees on the property.
The Oak Pass Main House perfectly integrates the interior and exterior and while the architecture is impressive, the landscape and Oak trees are clearly the stand outs!
