Los Angeles Design Firm Struere Goes Mid-Century Modern in Hollywood

Los Angeles Design Firm Struere Goes Mid-Century Modern in Hollywood

Los Angeles-based firm Struere had one thing on their minds when it came to designing their next Hollywood Home. That one thing? Mid-Century Modernism. Neatly tucked away in the Hollywood hillside, this beautiful open concept house was designed with the idea of having its inhabitants reconnect to their natural surroundings by creating a seamless flow from indoor to outdoor.

The house is divided into two separate stand-alone buildings, that join at the roof in a large square courtyard, and in the midst of the two structures, a tree is currently blossoming in full view of both sides of the home. The design firm's mission was to honor the tradition of modernist buildings and homes being erected in the L.A. area by conjoining the internal and external elements in its construction.

Sustainability also played a very important role in Struere's decision to build this home, sourcing environmentally friendly materials like high-performance glass panels for windows, and other energy-saving solutions to be added in the development of the property. For lovers of Mid-Century Modernism in Architecture, this home encapsulates the best of both worlds, bringing nature and man-made structures together in harmony.
