Sommers House. Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, California.

Jimmy Sommers House

Esta vivienda situada en la ciudad de Los Angeles, es un encargo del renombrado saxofonista y propietario de la Marca de Ropa WILDFOX,  Jimmy Sommers.  La parcela con una fuerte pendiente, se desarrolla en una serie de plantas  aterrazadas que buscan mediante la forma irregular y el uso de cubiertas verdes integrarse en la frondosa vegetación del lugar a la vez que adaptarse a un complejo programa y a una normativa local muy restrictiva.

Located in the city of Los Angeles, this house was commissioned by the well-known saxophon player and the CEO of Wild Fox Couture, Jimmy Sommers. The lot is on a steep slope, which required a split-level design of several floors following the irregular form to the hill, using the earth-sheltered roofs to integrate it into the leafy vegetation of the hill, and at the same time taking into account both the  owner’s requirement and the strict local building codes.
