Nakahouse is an abstract remodel of a 1960's hillside home located high in the Hollywood Hills, just below the Hollywood sign.

The existing home was built as a series of interconnected terraced spaces on the downslope property. Due to geotechnical and zoning constraints the foundations and building footprint were maintained. The interior was completely reconfigured, and the exterior was opened up to the hillside views and the natural beauty of the surroundings.

A large terrace was added to link the kitchen/ dining area with the living room, with a steel stair leading to a rooftop Jacuzzi deck . Terraces were also added to the bedroom wing and the upper master bedroom suite.

The exterior walls are smooth black plaster, designed to render the building as a singular sculptural object set within the lush natural setting. A series of abstract indoor-outdoor spaces with framed views to nature are rendered in white surfaces of various materials and finishes; lacquered cabinetry, matte white quartz, epoxy resin floors and decks.
